Qualitative Methods In Evaluation

United States
31st October, 2011 to 1st November, 2011
Event City: 
Anaheim, California

New and experienced qualitative researchers alike often ask: "Is my approach to qualitative research consistent with core principles of the option?" Evaluators who integrate qualitative options into their work are responsible to ensure this alignment.
This session aims to help you become a strong decision maker through the life of a qualitative research project. This process is facilitated by attention to the following questions:

  • How will the strength of your evaluation work be enhanced because you took a qualitative approach?
  • How will the qualitative analysis approach you have chosen help you arrive at your goals?
  • What does it mean to "stay close to the text?" How do you do it? Why does it matter?

The workshop will cover topics including: use of qualitative options in evaluation work; considerations for designing qualitative evaluation projects; data collections and analysis techniques; and tips for presentation of qualitative work.
