Qualitative Multi-Methods Research Initiative (QUAL)

Founding Director, 2015-Present


QUAL is a UW-wide initiative launched in response to pressing demand across the university for qualitative research design and methods training in the social sciences. QUAL aims to promote and systematize training in qualitative research methods and to build a community of qualitative multi-method researchers in the university, Seattle, and beyond. 

QUAL offers a Speaker Series – free and open to the UW community. In autumn and spring quarters the Initiative offers Workshops, hands-on tutorials using qualitative data analysis (QDA) software. The QUAL Concentration is intended for graduate students interested in furthering their qualitative research knowledge and skills.
