This one-day masterclass will provide advanced training in research methodology across families and relationships research. Practical experiences of working with particular methods and methodologies will be contextualised in overarching debates about methodology. Practitioners of families and relationships research are often at the leading edge of methodological developments and theory-and-method debates because of the particular challenges involved in this topic area. Researching families and relationships typically involves particular ethical dilemmas at all stages of the research process and tends to foreground the emotional work of doing research as well as issues of best practice around participation, inclusion and representation. Families and relationship researchers are high profile among pioneers in developments in data collection and analysis using mixed methods within qualitative research as well as mixed methods across methods collecting qualitative and quantitative data.
The session will begin with a brief introduction to these general issues before offering three workshops – covering mixed methodology design, secondary qualitative data analysis and ethnography. The workshops are designed to encourage participants to exchange ideas and take part in practical activities. The day will end with an overview session to draw out themes from the day and to place discussions into the wider context of families and relationships research.
The masterclass is being offered in conjunction with the CRFR New Researchers Conference, to be held in Edinburgh on 26 May 2015, but this workshop is open to all researchers with an interest in families and relationships research.
We will evaluate the masterclass and feedback results to NCRM, CRFR Board of Directors and to participants
