Durham Spring School on Advanced Qualitative Methods
Durham University Business School. Mill Hill Lane, DH1 3LB, Durham
Durham Spring School on Advanced Qualitative Methods will enhance doctoral students and early career researchers’ skills and knowledge of qualitative methods’ more advanced facets. The module builds upon a foundational understanding of qualitative methods to deal with those more complex issues. Attendees will develop a doctoral-level knowledge of various advanced methodological approaches to undertake cutting-edge research. In addition, participants will be taught how to manage qualitative data analysis using software packages. The sessions will be led by qualitative experts who will provide students with the skills to engage with the intricate areas of qualitative research effectively. During the two days, students and ECRs will be introduced to a range of methods to deal to challenging contexts and data. We will showcase student and ECR research projects using novel qualitative methods and offer attendees advice to incorporate advanced qualitative methods in their work.
At the end of the workshop, attendees will have:
- Critically understood a range of advanced approaches to qualitative methods and analytical techniques.
- Enhanced their skills and knowledge of qualitative methods’ more advanced facets.
- Received feedback and guidance on how to incorporate advanced qualitative methods in their research projects.
- Formed networks with other students and ECRs using or exploring advanced qualitative methods.
During the 2 days, we will combine training and experiences. The presenters will introduce methods and analytical techniques, which will be combined with short presentations by students and ECRs using advanced or innovative qualitative methods. We will explore methods and techniques to explore 1. Experiences and practices, 2. Narratives and discourses, 3. Processes and journeys and 4. Visuals and movements.
We will offer a separate optional session on the morning of day 3, where students will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their work.
