Qualitative research methods are becoming more widely used across social sciences disciplines. This workshop, as a follow up to the New Directions in Management seminar series, aims to give participants a detailed understanding of qualitative methods, with a focus on Grounded Theory and Ethnographic Fieldwork. The workshop will have a short introduction into the qualitative methods and will then delve into the theoretical and practical aspects of ethnography and grounded theory.
This workshop is mainly aimed at second and third year PhD students who employ qualitative research methods in their research and are interested to get a deeper understanding about methods employed to analyse qualitative data. This workshop will mostly benefit those with prior understanding of qualitative research who are interested in details of grounded theory and ethnography.
The workshop is held free of charge for the University of Edinburgh PhD students. However you need to apply through the registration link by the 7th of October. The number of students to be registered are limited and priority will be given to second and third year students using qualitative methods in their research.
