Finding new ways to screen and interview respondents remotely is more important than ever. QRCA members have reported increasing instances of respondents misrepresenting and disguising themselves in order to participate in more research studies; and, some seem to be stretching the truth during research.

In this 45-minute interactive session, attendees will watch expert Art Markman, PHD, via video demonstrate visual and interviewing techniques to use in order to identify which statements might be lies and which are the truth. We will then breakout into small groups to practice interviewing and observing each other to identify truths and lies. We will close with a group discussion about the many ways in which these techniques might be applied.

This is the first of a new series entitled Curated Creativity Conversations where we specially curate content and lead discussions focusing on creative tools & techniques, ideas and inspirations to impact your business, your research and your life. Have a topic that you are interested in exploring? Contact the C&I SIG Co-Chairs to share suggestions - Lisa Strick: and Colleen Dowd Kollman:
