13:20-14:00 Session 1: Avoiding Blindspots. Crowdsourced Qualitative Research that Ensures a 360 Degree Consumer View

Guy White - The Catalyx (CH)

While we recognize the benefits and deeper insights that can be obtained with research that incorporates System-1 learning, behavioural-based learning and consumer co-creation and ideation, we often don’t incorporate all aspects all the time. If on any given project, we’re not capturing the full picture of what people think, what they feel, what they do, and what they want, then we have a blindspot in our insights and the business actions we take based on them.In this session, we’ll use real examples to illustrate the blind spots that can happen when we don’t have the full picture of the consumer, and how that changes the business decisions. With specific cases, we’ll illustrate how the insights and recommendations change as you remove each aspect – and demonstrate how the strongest insights and recommendations happen when we have the total view.We’ll show you how we can quickly and cost effectively ensure we capture the total view of the consumer in every engagement or iteratively across several smaller engagements. We’ll also include a sneak peek at our new Consumer Activation System™, which is expressly designed to quickly and easily activate consumers to capture what they think, feel, do and want in order to answer a wide range of research objectives.

14:10-14:50 Session 2: Data-Driven Decision-Making (DDDM) for Business Leaders

King Costa (Global Centre for Academic Research, South Africa)

Business leaders with an aptitude for using data intelligibly will be able to perform better post COVID-19 outbreak era (McAfee & Brynjolfsson, 2012). Businesses can no longer ignore the role data plays in making crucial decisions about the next major step to be taken, particularly during the time of disaster or facing potential threats resulting from COVID-19 or similar occurrences. Data-informed decision-making will be beneficial to leaders who need to be at the vanguard of knowledge generation within the realm of ideation. COSTA Technique on the webQDA software provides organizations with cutting-edge technology using mix-media applications and web-based strategies to keep up with current trends, insights and multi-perspectival stakeholder analysis in real-time with high levels of efficiency and integrity. This talk will present ideas adapted to the capabilities framework developed by Jia, Hall and Song (2015), addressing five key dimensions in decision-making, such as data governance, data analytics, insights exploitation, performance management and data integration. Using the COSTA Model technique with webQDA, we will present how large volumes of textual data, also known and referred to as “big qualitative data” may be transformed into structured, coherent, meaningful and timely decision-making enablers.

15:00-15:40 Session 3: The company's exiting interview and the potential of its qualitative analysis for business improvement

Rodrigo Tavares - ERT Têxtil Portugal (PT) and Rita Silva - ERT Têxtil Portugal (PT)

The Company’s Exiting Interview is part of our process of Exit Evaluation, applied when someone leaves the company, developed by Human Resources (HR) department. This is an important moment to have real feedback about the company and allows the HR department to further understand the reasons behind such actions and act conformingly. This interview, the qualitative part of the process, appears to have more impact when speaking with the employees. Not only can they expose and explain more thoroughly their own reasons, as we, as Psychologists, can also study and capture, for example, their non-verbal communication or the use of specific words as indicators of the severity of the situations they are revealing. When a process is concluded, we gather the data, analyze it via Microsoft Excel and, resorting to a list of categories that allows to standardize the data, proceed to a more exhaustive examination. This procedure allows us to draw a pattern and act conformingly through actions such as additional training, improvement of supervisors’ awareness or upgrading working conditions. We will expose how we conduct this interview and how we analyze the data collected. We aim to transmit to those who own or manage any kind of business that, without a proper employee workforce that is correctly operating and satisfied with their function, the significance of working conditions or organizational profit can be insufficient. Subsequently, and contemplating people as the center of any company, we equally expect to receive some feedback of those who already do a similar process, enabling us to comprehend how this process can be improved and how others who use a parallel tactic have already improved their organization.

15:50-16:30 Session 4: Why and how to use qualitative data in HR Management? The case of employees’ feedback

Ana Veloso (University of Minho, Portugal)

Organizations produce huge quantity of data which, when transformed into knowledge, can help to achieve higher levels of performance. This means, in the lens of HRM, to receive feedback from employees as for example about satisfaction and productivity. Data that later are transformed into knowledge, is an important and strategic resource that demands competent analysis and can generate consequently effective interventions. The objective of this Talk is to present two organizational cases that used data to improve their performance: one focused on employee satisfaction and organizational climate and the other is related to evaluate the quality of a HRM practice, the recruitment process, through the assessment of employee perceptions about the employer, developed during recruitment interviews. In the former case is explored how the organization used data collected during the annual climate survey of the organization and how HRM subsequently designed interventions based on the employee feedback and proposals. The later, describe how the HRM department collected data to evaluate the quality of recruitment interviews and its impact on employee expectation about the employer_ psychological contract_ and its particular job role. It will be presented the process designed by the organizations to collect and analyze data which in these two cases are qualitative. Specifically, it will be presented a brief overview of the Template analysis developed by Nigel King that was applied in the analysis of qualitative data. The cases occurred in organizations that are industrial with more than 500 employees and an autonomous HR Department. However, it can be applied to different organizations namely SME.

16:40-17:20 Working smart and fast with text data

Fiona Wiltshier (Timberlake Consultants, United Kingdom)

There is often so much data that would be valuable to go through, but so many words and so little time. This presentation looks at how you can use NVivo to quickly go through data captured in surveys, documents, pdfs and other text sources, to both get an overall sense of what is there and, where needed, dive down into the data to see what is being said in detail. We will also look at ways you can both explore and visualise the data to help report back on findings.

17:30-18:30 Session 5: Re-imagining Qualitative Research with Netnography

Robert V. Kozinets (University of Southern California ,USA) and Rossella Gambetti (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy)

Social media research is still in an emergent stage of development. Big data approaches are common and traditional qualitative research rarely involves the interpersonal online interactions that are vital to contemporary social life. With deep background on method, and examples from a recent research project, we explain how netnography is being deployed to help brands and organizations understand and adapt to the age of COVID, influencers, and ubiquitous social media.

Nurses as a Drive of Change for Better Healthcare

Adelaida Zabalegui (Barcelona University, ES)

Providing high-quality care is a daily challenge for nurses worldwide. This presentation will focus on the proposals and advances of Nursing Now on nursing leadership at all levels, including in management, administration, entrepreneurship and politics. Nursing Now is a world campaign in collaboration with World Health Organization (WHO) and International Council of Nurses (ICN) to foster Nursing development globally. The vision of the campaign is aimed at improving health by rising the profile and status of nurses. It is aimed to assist Governments, politicians, decision makers and managers on the need and benefits of investing in Nursing, so that nurses’ expertise could fully used their competencies, and positively impact individual, social and community health. The campaign is based on the triple impact of nursing identified from APPG (UK Parliament): improvement in health, gender equality and better economy, as well as the need to advance in healthcare universal coverage.To achieve the best care possible and professional effectiveness, nurses must be empowered from leadership. In addition to the knowledge acquired during higher education, specialties, masters and doctorates, nurses must have the possibility of participation in decision-making about health. In addition, this presentation will talk about the Nursing Now recommendations for the redesign of healthcare and thus respond to the growing challenges, to be able to achieve higher objectives even when there are fewer resources and providing solutions to problems for the most needy and vulnerable groups, through the implementation of new models, structures and processes in health care.

NCRM Workshop: Changing Research Practices for Covid-19

Melanie Nind (National Centre for Research Methods/ Education School, University of Southampton, UK), Robert Meckin (National Centre for Research Methods/ School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester, UK) and Andy Coverdale (National Centre for Research Methods/ Education School, University of Southampton, UK)

The context for this workshop is the Covid-19 global pandemic and its impact on qualitative research. Globally, qualitative social researchers are having to re-think or plan their research to take into account the public health mandates including local/national lockdowns, travel and access restrictions, and necessity to wear face coverings and keep distance from others. In the UK, the National Centre for Research Methods has been funded to explore ‘Changing Research Practices for Undertaking Social Science Research in the Context of Covid-19’.

This workshop aims to engage participants who are working on their methodological responses to researching during the pandemic. The workshop design draws on a workshop series the facilitators ran in the UK. Participants will discursively reflect on the core challenges in conducting field work, including shifts to online and other creative spaces, and the associated ethical and validity issues. A strategy of exploring recent research history with the visual metaphor of a river will assist participants to look afresh – at the rapids, meanders, whirlpools etc - of researching in Covid times. The expected outcome is renewed energy for keeping qualitative fieldwork going with (at least of the) problems shared and solved. The workshop will last for two hours.

14:00-15:30 Session 8B: Workshop

Critical Self-Reflection in Qualitative Research

Anna CohenMiller (Graduate School of Education Nazarbayev University, Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan), Nettie Boivin (Department of Applied Linguistics University of Jväskaylä, Yväskaylä Finland)

Have you ever wondered if you were doing enough in your research? Perhaps you’ve wondered if you’ve spoken to enough people, heard their views deeply enough, or explained their lived experiences enough? Perhaps you’ve wondered how you can show or evidence your rigor to create socially-just research? In working with graduate students from around the world, these same questions often bubble up. Many have wanted to know the recipe or the formula for doing good, ethical, and socially responsible qualitative research. While there is no silver-bullet answer providing the answer to these questions, this workshop offers something more insightful—a chance to negotiate self-reflection to enhance your understanding and practice.

In this workshop, we will come together collectively to create a safe, community space to learn about critical self-reflection in qualitative inquiry. You will be guided through opportunities to explore ideas and perceptions about research with a supportive group of peers and step away with practical tools to deepen your understanding and practice of qualitative research.

14:00-15:30 Session 8C: Workshop

Qualitative Research while working from home using webQDA

Michael White (Research Office, Universidad Peruana Unión, Peru)

Research doesn’t stop just because we can’t go to our offices or out in the field. Social media and virtual conference rooms allow for a wide range of qualitative research studies, even while working from home. This workshop will show you some practical examples of how you can use webQDA to organize and analyze qualitative data from places you might not expect in order to inspire you to create your own qualitative research project. Facebook, Google Forms, Zoom, WhatsApp, and even YouTube can be used with webQDA. Want to know how? Come see how easy it is in this hands-on, informative workshop. All you need is a free 15-day trial of webQDA to get started!

14:00-15:30 Session 8D: Workshop

Making the most of rich data

Fiona Wiltshier (Timberlake Consultants, UK)

One of the most powerful aspects of working qualitatively is that you can use a wide variety of different types of data, offering the opportunity to explore topics in even more depth. Traditionally, as qualitative researchers, we have worked with text data, and while this is still of course a core element of qualitative data, there are now so many more options to consider.This workshop will show you how you can use NVivo to work with many different types of data, going beyond text to look at how you can work with audio and video recordings, images, surveys and social media as well as including text as needed.

We will look at bringing different data sources into a project; organising, coding and analysing them; then moving on to look at ways of exploring and visualising data in a variety of ways.


15:40-17:10 Session 9A: Panel Discussion: Data Collection Methods Through Online Modalities

Data Collection Methods Through Online Modalities

 David Lumowa (Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies, Silang, Cavite, Philippines), Arceli Rosario (Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies, Silang, Cavite, Philippines), Pavel Zubkov (Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies, Silang, Cavite, Philippines) and Safary Wa-Mbaleka  (Adventist University of Africa, Nairobi, Kenya)

AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic has not only affected the world’s economy, the delivery of education and other services, but also how research is conducted. Travel bans and policies on social and physical distancing have restricted researchers’ mobility to reach and be at natural settings and made it impossible for them to have face-to-face interactions with their participants on the site. So the question is, Shall researchers stop conducting research studies because of the challenging times? We would say, No. On the contrary, at these times, research is significantly important, more than ever. We grapple with a phenomenon that is complex and that impacts our lives very deeply. We have many questions to answer, and one of the best tools available to us is the qualitative research approach. Hence, in this panel discussion, our team would like to engage qualitative researchers in a conversation regarding the use of internet technologies for conducting online research, specifically data collection methods such as in-depth interviews, observation, focus group discussions, and other alternatives can be done through online modalities.

15:40-17:10 Session 9B: Panel Discussion "From qualitative methodology to mixed methods in systematic observation of physical activity and sport: An approach to quantitizing"

From qualitative methodology to mixed methods in systematic observation of physical activity and sport: An approach to quantitizing

Teresa Anguera (Faculty of Psychology, Institute of Neurosciences, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, España), Oleguer Camerino (National Institute of Physical Education of Catalonia -INEFC, Institute of Biomedical Research Foundation Dr. Pifarré -IRB Lleida, University of Lleida, Lleida, España), Marta Castañer (National Institute of Physical Education of Catalonia -INEFC, Institute of Biomedical Research Foundation Dr. Pifarré -IRB Lleida, University of Lleida, Lleida, España) and Mariona Portell (Department of Psychobiology and Health Sciences Methodology, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Cerdanyola del Vallés, España)

In recent years there have been various clashes between supporters of the misnamed qualitative and quantitative methodologies (and we say ‘misnamed’ because the coverage of both is so wide that hardly conform to a methodology in the strict sense). The field of physical activity and sport has not been left behind, and the literature shows us this radicalism. For several decades, systematic observation in physical activity and sport was characterized by qualitative-quantitative radicalism. Our research group works in both dimensions, but in this discussion panel, specifically, we are interested in the qualitative aspect. In our work we have developed: life stories, event descriptions, transcripts of radio broadcasts in sports competitions, interviews with physical educators, comments on discussions in the dressing rooms, etc., which had in common the textual style in which the study began and ended, and that they adjusted to the standards of qualitative research. In Anguera, Camerino, Castañer, Sánchez-Algarra and  Onwuebuzie (2017) it is documented that in the last quarter of the century interest has increased in the use of qualitative methodology in physical activity and sports studies, which can be attributed to a combination of theoretical and pragmatic elements (Moran, James, & Kirby, 2011). In the study by Culver, Gilbert and Trundel (2003), the qualitative papers published in this area only reached 17%. But researchers of physical activity and sport, although without ceasing to criticize the qualitative methodology (Sparkes, 1998), have been progressively attracted by the possibility of delving into the personal perspectives and experiences of the participants of physical activity training and competitions and sport, which involves a wide range of possibilities, and the emergence of the narrative inquiry in physical activity and sport has contributed to this (Monforte, Pérez-Samaniego, & Devís-Devís, 2018; Smith & Sparkes, 2009).

Re-thinking Qualitative Research Data through Qualitative Secondary Analysis

Kahryn Hughes (University of Leeds, UK)

The ongoing revolution in the digital data landscape has given rise to a vast international network of research data repositories and infrastructures that present unparalleled opportunities for research data reuse. While there are well-established methods and approaches for the reuse of quantitative research data, debates on appropriate methods for reusing qualitative research data suggest this enterprise is far from straightforward. This complexity has driven a growing discussion on the distinctive affordances and defining challenges of qualitative secondary analysis (QSA), particularly questions concerning how researchers might return to research data at varying degrees of ‘remove’. Rather than viewing such concerns as the exclusive domain of discrete and specialist methodological fields, the arguments in this presentation proceed from viewing all qualitative research as having ‘secondary’, ‘longitudinal’, and ‘reuse’ components. Such aspects of qualitative research may sometimes be approached explicitly and self-consciously and sometimes in ways that are scarcely acknowledged.Using concrete examples from a programme of research and methodological innovation, I use QSA as an example of how best to take account of, and indeed harness, both the analytical limitations and affordances of varying degrees of temporal, relational and epistemic ‘proximity’ and ‘distance’ from the formative contexts of data production. In doing so I develop two central lines of argument. First, I directly challenge the notion that working at varying degrees of remove from formative data contexts is exclusively a source of empirical and analytic deficit. Second, I move from a view of qualitative data as a neutral and reified ‘product’, towards a consideration of how researchers apprehend different orders of data to recast these as evidence. In developing these arguments, I consider how QSA requires us to address three main questions: What are our relationships to data? What new research relationships might QSA produce? And, finally, what research relationships does QSA reveal?

13:30-15:00 Session 13A: Panel Discussion: Feminist Participatory Action Research: A methodology of research and activism

Feminist Participatory Action Research: A methodology of research and activism

Trimita Chakma (Asian Center for Women’s Studies, Ewha Womans University, South Korea), Dr Naomi Joy Godden (School of Arts and Humanities, Edith Cowan University, Australia), Kate Phillips (Plan International Australia, Australia)

This panel session examines Feminist Participatory Action Research (FPAR) as a qualitative methodology for research and social change. The objectives of the panel session are:

  • To discuss and critically analyse the theory and practice of FPAR.
  • To share case studies of FPAR in Asia Pacific and Australia.
  • To explore outcomes, issues and tensions with FPAR, such as impacts on policy, and ethical considerations.

Increasingly, feminist human rights movements around the world are using FPAR to generate knowledge and action to strengthen their movements, challenge power structures, increase their impact, and inform transformational change. FPAR is a cyclical methodology of collective planning, acting, observing and reflecting, whereby women document lived experiences of injustice and take action to demand their human rights and inform structural change (Lykes & Hershberg 2012; Reid, Tom & Frisby 2006). FPAR combines research, gender justice and activism (Chakma 2016), and can be used by feminist social movements to develop, implement and evaluate strategies to challenge and transform patriarchal power. FPAR is an iterative, democratized methodology, and research participants are ‘co-researchers’ and ‘activist researchers’ who collectively generate knowledge and action as experts in their own lives (Godden 2017; Kirby 2011).

13:30-15:00 Session 13B: Panel Discussion "Qualitative Research on Preventing Gender-based Violence"

Qualitative Research on Preventing Gender-based Violence

Maria José Magalhães (Centre for Research and Intervention in Education, Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal), Raquel Rodrigues (Centre for Research and Intervention in Education, Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal), Susana Coimbra (Centre for Psychology at the University of Porto, Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal) and Isabel Viana (Department of Curricular Studies and Educational Technology, Institute of Education of the University of Minho, Portugal)

Gender-based violence is a comprehensive and complex issue that, also due to its variety of manifestations, has been researched within a vast number of subjects – from Sociology to Psychology to Education, among others – spawning a useful and great number of perspectives and lenses to approach this topic. This panel proposes that, while focusing more on qualitative research methods, both qualitative and quantitative methods combined, can produce “mutually illuminating” (Bryman, 2012, p.628) data. Over the past two decades, violence against women and girls and gender-based violence have been, in specific, acknowledged as a human rights issue and a health problem, with serious damage to the development of children and adolescents (Walker, Tokar & Fischer, 2000; Murnen, 2015; Banyard et al., 2019). Since 2004, schools have been considered privileged settings for primary prevention intervention (Rosewater, 2004) and there has been a growing number of programs being implemented in different countries, and with a variety of participants who plan and develop it with young people (from teachers to organizations, from activists to education professionals, etc.). However, for all the many promising strategies for preventing violence in schools, evaluation of these programs is still scarce and their long-term impact has rarely been studied (Magalhães et al, 2017; Cahill et al., 2019; Crooks, Jaffe, Dunlop, Kerry, & Exner-Cortens 2019). Nevertheless, in recent years it has been discussed the paramount role that educators and the entire educational community involved in the lives of students can have through the learning and apprehension of skills and strategies capable of recognizing and preventing violence (Noleto, 2008; Baker-Henningham, Scott, Bowers & Francis, 2019).

Methodological Innovation or Analytical Creativity? The New Practice-Based Typology of Narrative Analyses

Grzegorz Bryda (Jagiellonian University, PL)

The nature of qualitative research practices is multiparadigmaticity, which creates coexistence of different research and analytical approaches to the study of experience and interactions in the human lifeworld. This diversity is accompanied by claims made for innovation and creativity in qualitative research methods and computer-assisted data analysis. Moreover, editors of top journals are expecting scientific papers that bring something new into the field of qualitative research methodology and data analysis. Researchers applying for grants try to be looking for methodological newness in their research proposal, to be more visible for reviewers. It seems that this way of thinking has become widespread among qualitative researchers today. This methodological diversity is particularly perceived in the contemporary field of narrative research and narrative data analysis. The main purpose of this talk is a methodological reflection on the process of developing a new bottom-up typology and making a new proposition of practice-based typology of narrative analyses used by qualitative researchers in their research practices. This reflection is based on a specific research project recently developed. The research and data analysis methodology is a combination of the classical CAQDAS, Corpus Linguistics, and Text Mining procedures to examine the different analytical strategies grounded in a vivid language of English-language research articles, published in five influential qualitative methodological journals between 2002-2016. Using the dictionary-based content analysis in the coding process, the procedure of hierarchical clustering, and topic modelling – a text-mining tool for discovering hidden semantic structures in a textual corpus – I confront heuristic typology proposed by Catherine Kohler Riessman with the exploratory, data-driven approach in order to contribute to a more coherent image of relations between different narrative analysis approach in the contemporary field of qualitative research. Finally, I propose a new network knowledge representation model of the constructing typology of narrative analyses, based upon written evidence of qualitative research practices than heuristic thinking. Moreover, I discuss the problem of methodological innovation and analytical creativity in the field of qualitative research practices, taking into account this environmental diversity context and my own research and analytical experience.
