ANZEA online session for members: Survey fatigue and the tragedy of the commons
October 6, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
ANZEA warmly invites our members to join this free lunchtime session with Adrian Field.
Survey fatigue and the tragedy of the commons: Are we plundering our participants’ finite resources of patience and trust?
The ‘tragedy of the commons’ explores the drivers and consequences of systems of shared resources, where individual users – acting independently according to their own self-interest – behave contrary to the common good of all users, by depleting or spoiling that resource through their collective action.
In this presentation Adrian Field will pose the question of what if people’s willingness to take part in evaluation and research activities is itself a finite resource? What are the changes that we need to make in our mindsets, and instigate more broadly in our professional and policy networks?
Adrian Field practices evaluation through his consultancy, Dovetail, and is also the Co-Convenor of ANZEA.
