Abstract

PhD students often experience particular challenges in the process of analyzing their qualitative data and writing chapters/papers about these analyses. This seminar entails an intervision between PhD students who are at a more advanced stage of their research. The workshop expects PhD’s to discuss these challenges among each other under guidance of two experts in qualitative data-analysis. Although this seminar focuses on the process of writing and qualitative data-analysis, given the nature of qualitative research, it is possible that a discussion on these issues leads into other aspects of a qualitative research, such as the development of research questions, data-collection and ethics.

The seminar will be organized in a way that allows a small group of PhD students to have sufficient time to discuss their key challenges with peers and experts. Each participating PhD student will have around 10’ to discuss her/his challenges in front of their peers and the two moderators, after which the latter two initiate a group-wide discussion on these challenges. The PhD students have to send the two moderators/experts maximum three specific questions by email at least three weeks before the start of this seminar. Given the focused and intensive nature of the discussions, a maximum of 10 PhD students will be allowed to participate in this seminar. It is important to stress that this seminar is intended for PhD students who are at an advanced stage of their research, and should have already collected and analyzed (a substantial part of their) data. It is important that you only register for this seminar if you have a strong commitment to participate and think along with your colleagues’ problems as well.
