    Course title: How to build a case study – a demo session
    17 March 2021, 12:00 UTC with feedback session on 24 March, 12:00 UTC

    with Ivan Smiljanic and Natasa Strelec Mahovic

    Have you ever done a case study yourself? What is a case study anyway – is this a nice short story about the event that happened, supported by some scientific variables? Or this is research paper triggered by a certain event that did not go under public or scientific radar? Why and how experts produce case studies, and who needs them anyway?

    In this short course webinar we will try to answer aforementioned questions and hint to you the tools and know-how to assist your own potential venture into case studies.

    There must be a situation or event in your own work where your algorithm did not perform well for some reason, or you gave a wrong forecast, or there was so much freezing rain that you could not enter your car in the morning – and you ask yourself why, perhaps you want to investigate more and share your finding with the world. For those interested, we will also reserve time and means to build and go together through your own case studies in the follow-up event, a week after the initial webinar.

    The webinar will take place on 17th March, and the follow-up session on the following Wednesday, 24th March.
