The Department of Methodology is now offering a walk-in “methods surgery” where staff and students can drop in for advice on methods-related problems they may have. Two members of staff, one with a background in quantitative methods and the other in qualitative methods, will be present at each session to help with a range of methodological problems. The focus is on methods, not software, since there is a separate “software surgery” offered by LTI. The “methods surgery” is offered weekly during term-time on Thursdays 10-12 in COL 8.13. This service is based on a first-come, first-served policy: no appointment is necessary.
