This live online Zoom course provides you with the essential skills needed to design your own qualitative research study.

Qualitative research seeks to understand people’s lived experiences and to answer questions about meaning and perspective, including from the standpoint of the participants themselves. It is particularly effective in obtaining culturally specific information about the values, views, behaviours, and contexts of particular groups.

This live online one-day course (delivered via Zoom) provides participants with an introduction to the key principles and benefits of qualitative research which must be considered in a qualitative research design.

This includes the main methods and techniques employed in qualitative studies such as interviews, focus groups and observations. It outlines how to design an effective qualitative research question, research instruments, how to sample and recruit participants, data analysis, and ethical considerations.

The course is delivered via a combination of presentations, discussions and practical activities. It equips participants to confidently implement their own qualitative design in applied research projects and evaluations in a range of settings. By the end of the course participants will be able to design their own qualitative study.
