(39 minutes; posted Feb. 22, 2023)
Vince Hopkins returns to the podcast to chat about the continuum of research design from lab studies to field studies. We discuss the opportunities and challenges of different research designs as well as how to deal with different constraints prospectively in design or retrospectively in analysis. We also discuss how field studies provide a wealth of learning for all involved, no matter what the results are or whether a trial was even run.
