Qualitative Research Consulting
and Professional Development

Consultancy in Qualitative Design, Collection, and Analysis

Qualitative research is an art and science. In many doctoral and masters programs, the development of qualitative research is overlooked. However, many students choose these methods to complete dissertations and theses. This has resulted in qualitative scholarship which is thin in reporting, relying on simple phrases such as "themes emerged," or a "qualitative approach was employed." The difficulty with thin scholarship as this, is that many rich data sets are not explored to the depth in which they could be and the power and beauty of qualitative research is criticized.

The above issues, provide some idea of why I am engaged in teaching, producing, and consulting on qualitative methodologies. Working with me, can include:

  • Assisting in the development of a solid research question and identifying the appropriate methodology

  • Informing researchers on developing and following an analytic plan

  • Connecting codes to themes, and substantiating claims

  • Working with theory, and linking findings, analysis, and discussion back to theory
