Educators often want to know about how people understand or perceive aspects of their educational experience or professions. Qualitative research represents a systematic approach to narrative (spoken or written) or visual data that leaves intact the robust experiences of people, thereby representing an important way of interrogating education and improving health professions education.
Through short, interactive didactic presentations, small group discussions, practice activities, and peer presentation, the speakers will introduce participants to several aspects of qualitative research. Working from the attendee’s own research interests, during the workshop the participant will write a qualitative purpose statement, synthesize usable qualitative research questions, select an appropriate study design, and plan methods for data collection and analysis.
