Two linked panels will share experiences and explore innovative strategies for teaching qualitative methods, with the intention of improving qualitative methods training in geography at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Panelists will share innovations in the design of syllabi; in the use of particular activities, readings or class assignments; in mentoring graduate students on methods and research design; and/or they will discuss ways to advocate for expanding qualitative methods training and funding at an institutional level. Potential topics include: teaching feminist, decolonial and/or participatory methods; helping students effectively link theory to research design; assisting students in grasping epistemological and ethical issues in research; designing exercises that provide hands-on experience collecting and analyzing qualitative data; teaching the use of new social media for data collection or research dissemination; designing fundable qualitative projects. We will leave plenty of time for dialog and audience-wide discussion in these panel sessions.
