Capturing daily life: The use of the Mobile Diary in Research

The Department of Family Studies within the Faculty for Social WellBeing at the University of Malta announces a two hour seminar on Diary methods in research and intervention by  Prof Anna Rönkä  from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.  

Diary methods are widely used in research as these methods give access and are sensitive to daily dynamics. The mobile diary is a diary research method which utilises mobile phones as tools for data collection. Prof Rönkä will introduce a mobile diary that they have developed and piloted to study relations and daily wellbeing in different groups (parents, children, adolescents, client families). She will also discuss the strengths, limitations and future possibilities of mobile diaries and interventions.

The Department of Family Studies would like to invite interested academics. Master and PhD students are also welcome. The seminar will be held on the 4th May 2017 at the University of Malta Main Campus at Msida and it shall run from 1200hrs to 1400hrs

Venue: Faculty of Education Boardroom
