Event Details

Join us at ResearchTalk’s Qualitative Design and Data Collection Camp, March 13-16, 2023.

Join us for 3.5 days of focused attention on improving your ability to design and execute qualitative projects. Our mentor team will help you work in a way that keeps you engaged and motivated through the life of your project.

Our camp participants appreciate the opportunity to give themselves “permission” to spend time with their project, away from their busy work and family lives, with coaching from our team of experts.

Take advantage of the opportunity to interact with fellow qualitative researchers across a variety of disciplines.
