This 8-hour workshop introduces researchers to some basics of qualitative analysis. It focuses on the multiple philosophical bases of qualitative methods, ethical questions that arise in qualitative work, and introduces interviews and ethnography as qualitative research tools. By the end of the workshop, researchers should appreciate why philosophy and ethics matter in both the conceptualization and execution of qualitative methods; they should also understand the basics of interview methods and ethnography.  The workshop is strongly recommended for researchers with little or no prior experience with qualitative methods as it prepares them to participate effectively in the compulsory 'Introduction to Qualitative Methods' taught in the second term. Researchers should take this workshop in the same academic year as they will attend the compulsory course. Register for this course
