Introduction to Qualitative Data Collection Methods - 12/16/2024

Includes a Live Web Event on 12/16/2024 at 3:00 PM (EST)

This workshop is intended for physicians and generalists in medical education, as well as faculty and staff involved in student affairs, who wish to develop perspectives and skills for collecting qualitative data, such as data from focus group discussions, interviews, observation field notes, and responses to open-ended questions—used in admissions processes, program development, curriculum evaluation, needs assessments, performance evaluation, and various scholarship and research applications.

After participating in this workshop, learners will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate applied knowledge of the appropriate selection, use, and standards for rigor of some common methods for collection of qualitative data;
  2. Generate research questions appropriate for qualitative studies and choose appropriate data collection methods;
  3. Demonstrate applied knowledge of approaches to achieve rigor in the design of qualitative studies and collection of qualitative data;
  4. Demonstrate essential skills required for conducting focus groups

Recordings will be made available for viewing following the completion of each workshop. Viewing of recordings may not be substituted for participation in live workshops.

This workshop is a part of the MERC Virtual Workshop 2024 - Series 4.
