Every August since 2012, the GESIS Summer School in Survey Methodology takes place at GESIS, Cologne. Lecturers and participants from all over the world and from many different fields come to Cologne to take part in Europe's leading summer school on survey methodology, research design, and data collection.
The GESIS Spring Seminar has been taking place in Cologne annually for more than 40 years. It offers three consecutive one-week courses in advanced methods of quantitative data analysis for Social Scientists. Language of instruction is English.
Since 1980, the GESIS Methodenseminar offers courses that teach basic knowledge and skills in quantitative data analysis. The courses are held in both German and English. The Methodenseminar has a modular structure and follows an interdisciplinary approach.
GESIS Workshops are short courses of one to three days covering a large variety of Social Science research methods, ranging from quali-
tative interviews to questionnaire construction, from sampling procedures and introduction to specific survey programmes through to data analysis. Most Workshops are conducted in German, but some are offered in English.
In 2019, GESIS - in cooperation with Muteesa I Royal University, Uganda - will organize the International Summer School in Uganda: Survey Design and Data Management (ISSU). The Summer School is funded by the VW Foundation and will provide 50 participants from Germany, Uganda, and Kenya with an intense training in social science research methods. In additoin, it wants to foster international research collaboration and intercultural exchange as well as contribute to capacity building in Eastern Africa.
GESIS sustains the formation of an interdisciplinary community in the field of Computational Social Science (CSS) by organizing a summer school on methods in CSS and by offering further training courses in data science and CSS methods. Our conferences and symposia provide for tutorials and hands-on-workshops. The GESIS Computational Social Science (CSS) Seminar is a monthly event for expert exchange on data science and social analytics (conducted in English).
