This course is a hands-on workshop on Experience-Sampling (ESM), often also referred to as Ecological Momentary Assessment. The workshop consists of five sessions detailing the background and pros and cons of the ESM methodology, a state-of-the-art overview of considerations involved in ESM protocol/survey construction, study design, data collection. In addition, it will introduce participants to current tools in visualizing and in analyzing ESM data using multilevel regression models (in R). The workshop offers a combination of lectures and direct, hands-on experience in designing, collecting, and analyzing ESM data through interactive practical sessions. The target audience consists of researchers with no or limited experience in ESM methods. The goal is to prepare interested researchers with a solid toolbox to conduct their own ESM work.
