Qualitative Research: A practical introduction into the art of getting lost
Time & Location
About the Event
Do you wish to conduct qualitative research but feel lost during the analysis or don’t know how to get started? In this FOWI Academy session we aim to cover the when, how, and what of qualitative research. Specifically, we will provide a basic overview of qualitative methods used to analyse non-numerical data—typically spoken or written text—and deep-dive into some common tools and techniques (e.g., thematic coding). This session will be hands-on including demonstrations and exercises to help you translate the qualitative tools into practice. During the presentation we will be sharing tips and lessons-learned from our own experience with conducting qualitative research. The final part of the session will be open for addressing questions regarding the challenges you have come across in conducting and publishing qualitative research and for reflecting on how qualitative approaches could enhance your own research.
