Our Fantastic Voyage: Some Highlights of a Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration on Vaccination Intent
Leah Witus (Chemistry) and Erik Larson (Sociology) will present "Our Fantastic Voyage: Some Highlights of a Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration on Vaccination Intent" on Friday, March 31, from 12:00-1:00 PM in the DeWitt Wallace Library, suite 309. How did a phone call about IRB procedures lead to a collaboration between a chemist and a sociologist? What happens when colleagues across campus start asking each other questions outside of their usual fields? In early 2021, as the first COVID-19 vaccines became available, we (Leah Witus and Erik Larson) teamed up on a research project studying how watching an educational video affected viewers' intention to get vaccinated. In this Serie center presentation, we'll talk about the twists and turns in the study from design, to analysis, to publishing. Of course, we'll share some of our findings, but also want to discuss what the cross-disciplinary collaboration process itself was like, our experience publishing our results, and how we've since incorporated the study into our teaching. Here is a link to the event, which can be added to your Google Calendar. You can subscribe to the Serie Center Events calendar for a list of all our events. Lunch will be provided. All faculty and staff are welcome.
