    Doing Credible Qualitative Research https://dresa.org.au/events/doing-credible-qualitative-research Qualitative researchers often try to do the same as quantitative research but with smaller samples. This master-class offers lectures and data workshops covering the latest approaches to key areas of qualitative research. It outlines threats to credibility and shows how to make your research credible. * Finding a topic in your data (as opposed to quantitative research, qualitative research is often inductive; discovering unexpected things in your data) * Mixed methods.

  • Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-social-network-research-and-analysis-online This course is designed for social researchers using qualitative and mixed methods. The course builds from the basic, pioneering methodologies of Social Network Analysis (SNA): survey-based egonet SNA and sociometric, "whole network' SNA, and their extensions, to network sensitive ethnographies, community networks, web-based network surveys and research on social media activities. The course reviews the possibilities for working with rich network data from interview or online sources and the unique perspectives that qualitative and social research traditions bring to these tasks. The course explores ways to best manage and explore different kinds of network data in Excel, uses UCINET and NetDraw to produce network diagrams and descriptive statistics. We review other appropriate software related to participants' needs. The course serves as a transition to the associated ACSPRI courses Network Analysis in Social, Business and Political Research and Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists. Network research designs covered in this course are: * Surveys using ego-centric network (egonet) methods * Network-sensitive ethnographies * Sociometric (‘round robin’) ‘whole network’ studies and small group research * Associational/ Affiliation (‘2-mode’) networks (including ethological studies) * Cognitive mapping and socio-cognitive mapping (SCM) For each methodology we consider the best ways to code and manage raw data, the most efficient formats for importing such data into visualisation and analysis software and appropriate measures and statistics for reporting findings. We also discuss the process of relating validated findings to broader research questions (‘meta-inference’), extrapolating them to other settings and associated questions of research design. 2023-01-16 09:30:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online Online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all social network researchSocial network analysisMixed MethodsQualitative ResearchQualitative methodssocial media data
  • Introduction to Qualitative Research: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Introduction to Qualitative Research: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-qualitative-research-online In this course you will learn about the foundational elements of qualitative research and how they are interrelated. We will unpack the key components of qualitative research design, including the stances and theories that underpin qualitative methodologies, as well as techniques of data collection and analysis. We pay particular attention to what’s involved in ethically employing popular methods such as interviewing and observation. We also address the practical and ethical considerations of online methods, given the growing uptake of remote research during the coronavirus pandemic. The course combines short lectures covering foundational issues with practical workshops that give you a chance to practice qualitative techniques first-hand. The target audience for this course is those who would like to become more familiar with qualitative research techniques, from postgraduate university students and staff, to researchers in government and private organisations. 2023-01-16 10:00:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI online online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative ResearchQualitative methodsIntroductoryqualitative data
