A lecture titled "Envisioning the Survey Interview of the Future" is
scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Speaking will be Michael Schober, professor of psychology and dean at the New School for Social Research. He is expected to discuss the impact of new and emerging communication technologies on the survey interview and to explore methods and criteria that can be used to evaluate these technologies.
Schober studies how people coordinate their actions, the mental processes underlying that coordination and how new technologies mediate coordination. His research deals with interdisciplinary questions in psychology, linguistics, human-computer interaction, music, public opinion research and sociology.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Survey Research Center.
