Dr Bernie Hogan, for his role in developing two of the OII's most
innovative MSc courses: "Online Social Networks" (developed with Dr
Sandra Gonzalez-Bailon) and "Digital Social Research". Online Social
Networks is an introduction to the analysis of online social networks,
providing students with the tools necessary to undertake research on
online networks, and to give an overview of the type of questions that

formats, and techniques for answering research questions based on data
from the web.
