SWDTP Funded Bespoke Qualitative Research Training: Preparing for speaking-based data collection
March 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This session will start at the point where you are ready to engage with your recruited sample and gather the data you need to help answer your research questions.
We will consider the practical steps required to set the scene for rigorous quality data collection. This will include preparing and piloting a research instrument and considering and piloting projective and enabling techniques.
We will explore ways of managing participants to maximise rapport, overcome pitfalls (for example, tricky power relations), and explore the particularities of ‘places’ to conduct your research.
Conducting online research will be an important topic for discussion. A key focus will be on exploring how best to prepare for research that enables meaningful insights from the opening up of creative, reflexive research participants, and how to avoid shutting topics and interactions down.
The Centre for Qualitative Research is running a series of South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP)-Funded Bespoke Qualitative Training Workshops. View an overview of all workshops in this series.
This workshop is part of the main training package. The main training package focuses on from planning to product: the process of conducting qualitative research. This will consist of a series of 7 bespoke online seminars delivered monthly to up to 50 students by collaborators across the SWDTP universities.
