Session Abstract

Qualitative research is uniquely suited to exploring the relationships between people, information and technology, an eclectic mix of approach, design, data collection, analysis and presentation that allows us to explore the diverse patterns and complex meanings of our relationships with information and technology. While there is a recognition of the value inherent in rigorous and good quality qualitative research, the know-how pertaining to the why and how, along with explicit real world examples, has not been as widely disseminated as it could be. This workshop aims to go beyond the textbook descriptions of qualitative research to provide a forum for the sharing of qualitative investigation ‘in the wild’, in all its diversity, complexity and reflexivity. The workshop will explore the practice and teaching of qualitative research across the iSchool community in order to extend our network and share our approaches to both.
