    This session will serve as an open student forum for participants who are considering using qualitative approaches in their research, work, or independent projects. The primary focus of this session will be to allow participants to share their thoughts, questions, and approaches to conducting, completing, and reviewing qualitative research. Information and ideas shared in this session will be used to cultivate future programming workshops, bootcamps, and series to benefit the professional development of our students.

    Your decisions as a researcher matters! As Dr. Kakali Bhattacharya (2017) states, “By now you should be aware of the fact that qualitative research is not only diverse, but there is no one correct way of designing or conducting a qualitative study” (p. 92), but this can be confusing for scholars new to qualitative research. This session is focuses on various decisions that you will make as a qualitative researcher. For example, we will discuss the qualitative research approaches and their congruent methodologies and methods.

    In this presentation we will explore contemporary issues in qualitative research that doctoral students should know. While qualitative researchers are “interested in understanding the meaning people have constructed”, this presentation will explore how research becomes me-search. The presenter will share stories as a way of knowing that can create both power and art of possibilities to reimagine and think about me-search in qualitative research.

    What does it mean to have privilege? How do your social identities (e.g., race, gender, class, religion, sexuality, etc.) grant or deny you privilege? How do you know when you have it and when you don't? How can we use power and privilege to transform systems that perpetuate inequity? This 2-hour interactive webinar will explore these questions, providing participants with an opportunity to delve into their social identities - a process that reveals how we all have and lack privilege simultaneously.

    It is incredibly important that scientists communicate their research in ways that the general public can understand.

    Graduate school can be tough, which is why you can't do it alone. It's important to build professional relationships with fellow graduate students, faculty members, and (most especially!) your advisor. But this isn't always easy to do. What do you do if you don't "click" with your cohort? How do you work with an advisor who seems distracted or difficult to communicate with? What if you've decided on a nonacademic career, but you're unsure if your advisor will be supportive? What do you do if you're experiencing discrimination or harassment?
