Build Your Skills
The goal for this workshop is to help students identify where and how to look for educational literature, and critically evaluate the information they find. Strategies for searching academic databases, as well as free online resources will be explored, and participants will learn how to examine and analyze their sources for appropriateness to their research projects.
Online CIRTL Workshop - Qualitative Research Primer: Using Narrative Data in Your Teaching-as-Research Project
This workshop is designed for participants from quantitative research backgrounds who are working on a Teaching-as-Research project (in the planning, implementation, or analysis phase), who have collected or have plans to collect narrative data, and are unsure how to go about analyzing such data. This workshop will provide a brief overview of qualitative research methods, elucidate the differences between quantitative and qualitative research, and introduce the iterative process of coding narrative data.
In the final of four online seminars on women in STEM, we will introduce some of the possibilities of critical and feminist pedagogies in STEM teaching and research for those new to these approaches. Attention will be given to discuss the value of these approaches, as well as potential barriers.
Presenters: Denise Pope, Teaching-as- Research Coordinator, CIRTL Network; Kyle Trenshaw, Educational Development Specialist for Natural Sciences & Engineering, University of Rochester
