The 2022 NACTA Annual Conference will feature five unique and engaging workshops throughout the conference. One of our first-time workshops is Qualitative Research Boot Camp: How to design, implement, and analyze data to successfully conduct SoTL research. This course will be given on Thursday, June 23, and will be led by Nathan Conner and Grady Roberts
Qualitative Research Boot Camp: How to design, implement, and analyze data to successfully conduct SoTL research
Nathan Conner - University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Grady Roberts - University of Florida
Date and Time: Thursday, June 23, 2022, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) utilizes quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods research approaches to collect evidence-based data to document teaching and learning impacts and to advance instructional effectiveness. However, most faculty in agriculture and natural resources are primarily trained in quantitative data analysis techniques, which may not be best suited for many SoTL projects. This impedes their ability to use qualitative research techniques to address a research question and therefore limits the impacts of their SoTL research. The goal of this workshop is to provide participants who traditionally have not been trained to conduct qualitative research with an opportunity to practice using qualitative research techniques.
