Course description

This basic course teaches the participants in 5 days how to start from a research question, conducting a qualitative research and progress to writing a scientific paper in qualitative research. This basic course provides hands-on tools for starting researchers to be able to start up, perform and finish a qualitative study independently and scientifically rigorous.

Experienced qualitative researchers of international repute will lead the course and share their experience in a variety of research projects. Participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences of research, including their questions, doubts and failures.

These are the lectures and workshops in brief:

  • Qualitative inquiry: a different paradigm + exercises
  • Setting up a qualitative research project + workshop
  • Reflections on own research projects in private consultations (optional)
  • Data-collection techniques (interviews, focus group discussions and observations) + workshops
  • Analyzing qualitative data + workshop
  • Appraising quality and reporting + workshop
  • Qualitative data analysis using NVivo software

This year we invite an international speaker to talk about meta synthesis in qualitative research.
