Abstract:This workshop will refine the methods and concepts of sociotechnical systems. Through interactive training we will provide the workshop participants a mix of qualitative interpretation with quantitative, data driven approaches. The workshop will be divided into two parts. First, a conceptual grounding exercise featuring the motivations of participants in sociotechnical research, followed by small group discussions (led by organizers) about the sui generis of “traces" in our work. The second part will be four different technical breakout skills sessions about data collection, preparation, and analysis from both qualitative and quantitative perspectives. This advanced methods workshop builds upon the established base of people and practices to further the impact of sociotechnical research. It is directed towards scholars with exposure to Sociotechnical Systems research and ideas as well as researchers from other domains including science and technology studies, data science, social computing, new media literacies, HCI, critical information studies, and infrastructure studies.
