If you would like to offer a course on Methods for Studying Internet and Society (or Research Methods for Internet and Society) please feel free to use the proposed syllabus and course content linked below. It is based on my two edited books Research Exposed: How Empirical Social Science Gets Done in the Digital Age and Digital Research Confidential: The Secrets of Studying Behavior Online. The syllabus suggests themes for various weeks with relevant readings plus gives ideas for assignments that can be applied throughout the semester.

I have used this material with undergraduate students, Master's students, and PhD students. Most recently, in Spring '21, I taught it as an optional Master's seminar. In the evaluations, several students commented that it should be a required course in our MA in Internet & Society program as they found it so essential and helpful.
