"Building qualitative research capacity in partner countries to carry out qualitative research" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Comparative and International Education Society CIES Annual Meeting, Sheraton Atlanta Downtown, Atlanta, Georgia, <Not Available>. 2020-01-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1215932_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The first paper discusses the process the LRCP undertook to train partners in qualitative data collection and analysis. The purpose of the panel is to discuss the process of conducting the stakeholder analysis in each country, highlighting the innovative approach of expanding the in-country capacity to carry out rigorous qualitative research.
The core team trained national partners’ specialists in qualitative research processes and techniques across a period of six months. This period included constant follow-up and teleconferences with all partners, group calls, webinars, and two face-to-face trainings over five days. The first training (February 2016) focused on data collection techniques and modifying the interview and FGD protocols to better address the research questions within each country context. The second training (May 2016) focused on data analysis, report writing, and technical criteria for producing a high-quality qualitative research paper. A webinar and follow-up virtual trainings (May 2016) focused on data coding and categorization of the information collected. These topics aimed to ensure data quality and reduce bias. In addition, the training covered administering and IRB requirements.
During the initial training, each national team member took part in role-playing activities to practice using the protocols to conduct a face-to-face interview or FGD with other researchers, and the entire group provided feedback. The team practiced administering the protocols in the language appropriate for each stakeholder group. Finally, the first interviews provided teams the opportunity to gain experience administering the interview protocols, as well as to assess the appropriateness of the discussion questions. Teams noted challenges in administering the interviews, which we discussed during debriefings. The teams adapted protocol language and procedures accordingly.
The national partners collected data between February and June 2016. It was appropriate for them to conduct the research, as they were closest to the national and regional contexts and thus best able to understand the objectives on the basis of the interactions with the subjects they were engaging. Two researchers attended each interview, one to drive the conversation and the other to take full and comprehensive notes. Researchers also recorded the interviews as a backup.
National partners provided an initial analysis of information gained from the interviews and focus groups to summarize key takeaways and experiences that comprised a summary of emerging themes found during interviews. The teams used these field notes, in addition to the interview notes and transcripts when necessary, to analyze the data. Teams selected the NVivo or MAXQDA program to code the information collected. The core team provided ongoing technical assistance to national partners as they wrote up the results of the analysis and developed their research reports.

Abstract: Students increasingly expect learning materials to be on-demand and on-line in a variety of formats. Teachers are under pressure to make their lessons and expertise digestible and shareable by students, often internationally. For qualitative techniques this presents a challenge: how to engage students with complex and nuanced topics in formats that prioritise and reward short content? This talk will share data on the impact of a variety of different formats used on the Quirkos blog (www.quirkos.com/blog), a weekly qualitative methods resource with more than 100 articles and thousands of monthly visitors. Formats and platforms for social media, including Facebook, Google+, Academia.edu, Researchgate.net and LinkedIn posts, blogs, Tweets, infographics and video tutorials will be detailed and debated.

Abstract: Instead of conventional classroom lectures, a Chinese postgraduate school used the flipped classroom in qualitative research method course. To evaluate the effectiveness, this study explores what are the learning outcomes and which factors influence the outcomes from students’ perspectives. Semi-structured interviews and focus group interviews conducted, and the data were analyzed according to Robert M. Gagné’s theory of learning outcomes. The findings show that the attempt not only facilitates acquisition of principles and philosophy of qualitative research, procedures and techniques (i.e., research plan, interview, coding), how to use Nvivo, but also changes bias against qualitative research ,deepens understanding of the importance of teamwork and improves capacity of multitasking. About the influences, the following bring positive results: team-based learning, authentic research tasks, personalized feedbacks and tremendous dedication. Besides, other factors handicap the outcomes, including limited study time, a lack of teamwork skills, and unbalance between peer instruction and teacher instruction .

Abstract: The trade-offs between qualitative and quantitative research methods are well known. Qualitative research promises high internal validity and the ability to disentangle causal processes. Given the costs of conducting in-depth research, however, it is difficult to obtain the large number of qualitative observations required to establish external validity. We elaborate upon these challenges and discuss the relative merits and shortcomings of three strategies for building large-N databases using qualitative research: large-N field-based studies conducted by one or a few researchers, meta-databases constructed from existing qualitative studies, and large-N field-based studies conducted by research networks. Examples are drawn from research on collective action to manage natural resources.
