Cíle předmětu
This seminar will develop an overview of concepts, methods and applications of Internet based research. Alongside a theoretical discussion, special attention is given to applying theoretic knowledge learned during the course in designing and conducing your own online surveys and analysing them (basic analysis only). The course is composed of three parts; The first part will focus on a theoretical understanding of core concepts of internet-based research, the background to challenges of conducting internet-based research, different sources of data online etc. Here, both the seminar instructor and the students will present and discuss various academic studies which are based on data acquired online. In the second part of the seminar, students will have the opportunity to practice their newly acquired knowledge in designing and executing their own online surveys. Students will pursue their own individual research (basic) in various fields of interest. Students will be able to work on their surveys both in class and at home and will be continuously supported by the instructor in this process. In the third part of the course, online indices as data sources in academic research conducted in political science and international relations will be discussed in-depth. We will explore the most common indices seeking to measure and rank states’ political development and performance. We will assess their relative weaknesses and advantages and read multidisciplinary academic articles, utilizing such data. Though a partial list of such indices is offered, the students are highly encouraged to present indices other than those mentioned in the syllabus.

Metody hodnocení
"A passing grade will be given to students based on 1. the quality of a presentation in class (of a research paper OR an online index), 2. a (end-term) research paper (8-10 pages) based on your own online survey research, 3. discussion leading and seminar participation. Presence is important; a maximum of 2-missed classes is tolerated. Any further absence would result in a failed grade. All three requirements are necessary to successfully pass the course”.
