COST Action 15221 Training School 2017

We ReLaTe: Advancing effective institutional models towards cohesive teaching, learning, research
and writing development from the 4th – 8th December 2017as part of its work plan

Training School Overview

The purpose of the training school is to help participants to develop their qualitative research methods knowledge and skills.  They will do this by working through the problem of designing a data gathering tool for our COST Action; we will use this data gathering tool with key informants as we work through the Action.

 The following is indicative content for the training school:

  • introduction to, and/or rediscovery of, various data gathering methods commonly used for qualitative research
  • consideration of decision making around the appropriateness of one tool, and/or tools, over another for a given research project
  • with reference to a prescribed research question (drawn from COST Action 15221), outlining of a data gathering strategy which will respond to the research question
  • design of research gathering tool(s) which address specific COST Action 15221 goals
  • plan for the implementation of collective data gathering, sharing and analysis as part of the cross-institutional COST Action.

The training school will start at 12pm on December 4th and end at 1:30 at December 8th

Further, detailled information will be provided soon.

The training school facilitators are:

Chris Anson, North Carolina State University, United States of America

Christiane Donahue, Dartmouth College, United States of America

Katrin Girgensohn, European University Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.
