Description

Susannah Fox is an Associate Director at the Pew Research Center in Washington, DC, where she leads the health and technology portfolio.  She will conduct a 90-minute Master Class on participatory research. The final curriculum will be shaped by the learners themselves through their course applications, but tentatively includes:

  • What is participatory research? What can you learn when you listen more than ask?
  • Models of participatory research, a description of the process.
  • Participatory vs. conventional research: setting the agenda, ownership of results, power and control.
  • Problems and challenges of participation-based research.

Susannah Fox studies the cultural shifts taking place at the intersection of technology and health care. Her research has documented the social life of health information, the concept of peer-to-peer healthcare, and the role of the internet among people living with chronic disease. The best summary of Fox’s research can be found in this video of her speech, The Power of Mobile, or this at-a-glance guide. Fox contributes to a health care blog, e-patients.net, as well as a personal blog, and you can follow her on Twitter: @SusannahFox. Fox is the former editor of the website for U.S. News & World Report. She has also worked as a researcher forRealNetworks and for The Harwood Group. Fox graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in anthropology.
