Abstract

Delivered by qualitative experts, this blended learning training course supports you to develop skills in qualitative research methods.

Designed to follow the research process, this course initially provides lectures and practical hand on sessions considering how to prepare your research project and how to collect data.

Next participants gain hands-on practical experience of different data collection methods, including in-depth interviewing. During the last session students are supported to develop skills in qualitative data analysis, with a strong focus on thematic analysis. Throughout the course we consider core concepts underpinning all stages of the research process such as reflexivity, the iterative nature of data collection and analysis, and how to recognise and conduct ‘good quality’ qualitative research.

This course is particularly suited for people who are starting work on a project with a qualitative dimension, doctoral students at the beginning of their projects, and those who are thinking about using qualitative research methods for the first time.
