Yesterday I had the honor of being a presenter for the Master Class Webinar series of the International Institute of Qualitative Methodology at the University of Alberta, a Canadian group that has been in the forefront of improving and expanding research methodology in the social sciences. My title was:
Complex Teams and Qualitative Research: Exploding the Myth of the Lone Researcher
The presentation drew upon material from my book–Qualitative Research and Complex Teams (Oxford University Press), focusing on information from the research design chapter on the topics of: 1) team formation; 2) writing decisions; and 3) program management from a digital toolkit approach. The audience asked very good questions that reminded me of how many untapped methodological possibilities are still waiting out there for qualitative researchers to probe.
My thanks to the organizers who worked so smoothly to put everything in place.
