    Writing for the general public is a different skill than writing for academics. Publishing peer-reviewed journal articles is not necessarily the best way to get information back to communities who might benefit from the research. Dr. Jessica Gullion provides a set of tips and how-to’s for transforming qualitative research into concept papers, blogs, and opinion pieces intended for a wide readership.

    Five arts-based qualitative researchers discuss their approaches to inquiry through the art forms of theatre (Johnny Saldaña), visual art (Kakali Bhattacharya), poetry (Monica Prendergast and Robyn Shenfield), and comics illustration (Sally Campbell Galman). The presenters testify that the arts are epistemologies—ways of knowing—and their uses in qualitative research generate analytic insights not possible through conventional methods. The webinar showcases their unique artistic styles and offers recommendations to colleagues interested in exploring the arts as forms of research presentat

    When researchers are investigating multifaceted phenomena, such as instructional processes and systemic change, the inquiry process is likely to be complex. In such situations, researchers typically need to refine their research questions as their understanding of the phenomena under investigation evolves. Consequently, initial codes that represented preliminary working theories are no longer sufficient and require re-conceptualization. These issues can be compounded when the number of data sources makes it infeasible to recode the entire data set. In our webinar, we will present the anal

    This webinar examines memo writing as a core generative tool for all qualitative researchers. We will discuss how memos; are used analytically and present different types of memos that are generated during the research process, both from a constructivist grounded theory (CGT) perspective as well as from a more generic methodological approach, can be used to move from “storying” a code, concept, or category towards more abstract conceptualizing writing invites researchers to think holistically about interviews as well as home in on specific text segments to make sense of the p

    This webinar focuses attention on one of the most complex issues in qualitative research: analyzing data collected in one language, in this case Spanish, for publication in a second language, in this case English. Building on their chapter in Charles Vanover, Paul Mihas, and Johnny Saldaña’s book, Analyzing and Interpreting Qualitative Research: After the Interview, Elsa M. Gonzalez and Yvonna S. Lincoln provide a set of how-to’s for engaging data with a cross-cultural and cross-language origin. There is no formula to translate culture, but the authors help us understand how to unpack t

    Drs. Charles Vanover, Mariaelena Bartesaghi, and Silvana di Gregorio discuss contemporary approaches to transcription. In the first half of the webinar, they will discuss how to use machine-generated transcription to develop rich first drafts of transcripts. The automated process they describe allows qualitative researchers to reduce time spent in hand transcription while providing abundant opportunity to engage with data. In the second half of the webinar, Charles Vanover then provides how-tos for narrativizing transcribed text. Mariaelena Bartesaghi discusses the theory and practice o

    Archived qualitative data, such as oral histories or data from prior research studies, present an underutilized resource with potential to yield rich, relevant, and insightful findings. This webinar focuses on challenges and opportunities associated with use of archived data to inform qualitative research. The broad array of archived data makes a range of qualitative approaches viable, although use of available archived data might require creative and flexible thinking by researchers. Benefits include efficient re-use of existing resources and reduction of participant burden. The range of avai

    Charles Vanover and Paul Mihas discuss their new book, co-edited with Johnny Saldaña, Analyzing and Interpreting Qualitative Research: After the Interview. The book’s goal is to provide a how-to guide for engaging data through the qualitative research life cycle—from the conclusion of substantial fieldwork to the beginning of formal research writing. Charles and Paul discuss how both beginning and seasoned researchers might use the book to plan their studies and engage with their data. They underscore the importance good decision-making plays in every stage of the qualitative journey and

    Are you interested in conducting a dissertation or thesis that provides meaningful service to an organization or community? You are not alone. Many students want to conduct program evaluation, action research, community-engaged studies, and other forms of collaborative inquiry that do not easily fit traditional structures for dissertation and thesis writing. This webinar focuses on three questions to consider when conducting a service-oriented dissertation or thesis: What is a service-oriented dissertation or thesis, including its purpose and characteristics? How do I work p

    As a scholar, you have the opportunity to make unique contributions to the discourse around topics that matter to you. To do so, you need to grow your scholarly voice. In this interactive webinar, we will teach you how to write in ways that help your voice be heard. Learn how to make claims that are supported by evidence. Discover the power of paraphrasing, and finally, learn how to synthesize (not just summarize) literature. We will both model and provide opportunities to practice these three scholarly writing skills. Register: https://go.qsrinternational.com/Developing_Your_Voice?_ga=2.

    Most can imagine the academic writer who effortlessly turns caffeine into words and might *actually* be a machine. However, most academic writers don’t particularly feel like writing machines. Though successful, they often find writing painful, laborious, and perhaps more difficult than necessary. Tune in to hear Sharon Zumbrunn, author of “Why Aren’t You Writing?: Research, Real Talk, Strategies, and Shenanigans,” share some of the many psychological, emotional, and logistical hurdles that can get in the way of the very human process of writing. This webinar intertwines a discussion of
