Summer Institutes 2014
Now Open for Registration!
This is a foundational course focused on general principles of, and generic techniques for, qualitative analysis treating text as index of experience vs. as object of analysis. Analysis approaches featured include those commonly used in qualitative studies in the practice disciplines, including content/thematic and narrative/discourse analyses, and grounded theorizing.
The focus of this institute is on concrete strategies to produce competitive qualitative research proposals (with emphasis on NIH grants) and research reports publishable in high-quality peer-reviewed journals. The Institute will cover an array of topics including techniques to communicate the significance and methodological details of a planned study, managing responses to reviewer concerns raised in a prior submission, selecting the right style, logic, and structure for the research report, effectively using literary (e.g., images, metaphors) and other devices (e.g., quoting, counting, tabulating, diagramming), presenting research results accessible to and translatable by researchers and practitioners, strategically planning multiple reports from a common parent study, and managing reject and revise-and-resubmit responses to submitted manuscripts.
