Qualitative Research Practice 2007

Students in the late stages of preparing qualitative research theses may want to consider joining the following:

CHL 5122 Qualitative Research Practice
Winter term 2007, Thursdays 9-12 at HS715 (155 College)
Instructors: Ellen MacEachen, Joan Eakin

Purpose and description of course: This course is designed for graduate students in the late phase of their thesis research. It is a non-graded course (pass-fail only) that provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of thesis work and for advanced exploration of methodological, theoretical and dissemination issues and activities. The course helps counter the isolation and stalling of thesis work, and provides mentorship in addressing the particular challenges of qualitative research and scholarship in health research and other settings where qualitative research can run ‘against the grain’ of conventional science. The course also facilitates the formation of on-going networks that can serve as on-going resources to students as they complete their theses and move out into professional careers.

The course is, most essentially, a structured opportunity for students to talk about their own work and to get feedback and ideas from the instructors and other students. The course also provides an opportunity to address and revisit core methodological, theoretical and analytical matters, and to prepare students for some of the practical concerns of professional research and academic careers.

Three main topics of importance to thesis writing will form the core of these discussions:
  1. re-positioning the ‘front end’ of theses (reconstruction of research objectives; writing about method, theory and the literature);
  2. presenting results (structuring a monograph; establishing the point; writing the findings; making convincing arguments; the politics and ethics of representation);
  3. positioning, defending and presenting the research (demonstrating validity; oral and poster presentation; journal publishing).

Prerequisite for enrolment: To be admissible to the course, students must be fully engaged in the analysis and writing stages of qualitative Master’s or PhD theses. The course is open to students in all disciplines/faculties/programs, but if there is more demand than the course maximum, preference will be given to students who have taken courses in the Essentials in Qualitative Research (EQR) course series. Permission of the instructors will be required for enrolment. Contact Ellen MacEachen at
