The first of a two-part lecture series, this session begins with a short introduction followed by a lecture on theorising with qualitative data. 

Students said: 

"It was extremely thought provoking and engaging. I appreciated Prof Silverman's experience and honesty."

"A highly-regarded professor on a subject not well covered by the University couldnt have been more valuable if it tried!..  He covered key topics, provided considered advice without pandering to the status quo.  All round a fantastic session." 

"It was just jam packed full of information and I really liked the different take he had on qualitative research. I wish it were a lot longer...  The lectures were incredibly valuable."


The second lecture addresses the question How Many Cases do you Need?  and runs from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m.  Each session requires a separate registration.
