Quality Research Methods: Advanced Theory and Practice (PART 2)

This second part/day focusses on a deeper understanding of four qualitative research methods that explore experiential, practical and situated knowledge grounded in personal and shared experiences and pragmatic philosophies:

  1. Narrative approaches
  2. Ethnomethodology/Conversation Analysis
  3. Realist Research
  4. Experiential Evaluation

Who will benefit from this course?

The course mostly will be using examples from health and social care. However, the general principles are transferable to any area of investigation, and will benefit anyone with an interest in qualitative methods; especially those who believe in context-dependent and value based methods to understand human experiences.

The following are examples of groups that could benefit from the course:

  • Academics & Researchers
  • Health and social care practitioners and managers
  • Public health practitioners
  • Service improvement specialists
  • Implementation scientists
  • Post graduate research students
  • Health care designers and commissioners
  • Evaluators of complex interventions
  • Product designers/developers

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this advanced/second day programme participants will be able to:

  • Reflect on some of the ideas that guide experiential research approaches and their suitability for specific research questions
  • Describe the foundations of Ethnomethodological approaches for observational research, and the key principles and techniques of Conversation Analysis (CA)
  • Understand the models of Narrative research and its key principles and characteristics
  • Appreciate the fundamental values of Realist research and the unique insights that this approach can provide
  • Understand Experiential evaluation suitable for co-design and participatory approaches, where meaningful engagement with stakeholders seeks to understand the lifeworld of the people involved through empathic engagement
