Qualitative Research Seminar

- Discussion Group

This qualitative discussion group series is held on the FIRST Friday of every month in Samuels Building, Level 2, Room 241, UNSW (unless otherwise stated) from 9:30 – 11:00.

It is open to everyone – including students, staff, and researchers beyond UNSW.

Each month, the discussion is led by a facilitator, who will focus on a particular topic or issue relating to qualitative research. It is not a classic seminar series, although sometimes a guest speaker may introduce a topic with a brief presentation. Participants are invited to come and share their experiences and issues around the theme for each session. Often a reading will be sent prior to the meeting. The purpose of this seminar series is to share knowledge and build a community of practice in rigorous qualitative research.
