Reviews of AQR Qualitative Research Training Courses

Screening out white noise in data
What makes a good course? The ideal is one that is relevant, timely, and can be applied immediately to the attendee's current work. Job done then for AQR's Insight Sensemaking.
The challenge of a new lens
Semiotics, like qual research, is a broad church and this Breakfast Bites encouraged our author to come at projects from a different angle, with new approaches to analysis.
Run the room
Want to learn how to run a workshop? Come to a course that's run like one. Attendees valued the tuition, the interaction, the venue and the opportunity to sit on both sides of the table.
Is there anyone out there?
Breakfast Bites tips for remote debriefs proved a compelling topic for researchers eager to surmount such obstacles as awkward silences and fears that your audience is slumbering.
An introduction to ethnography
This was a Breakfast Bites which our author felt both curious and anxious about. But she needn't have worried: and she left with key tips on how to approach research, and life.
Top marks for Mod Skills Workshop
A successful course is one that tackles a topic requiring high levels of concentration, combining theory and practice, and leaves attendees energised while boosting their confidence.
How to frame a living portrait
This was a day that promised much and delivered. Three sessions focusing on writing, photography and film-making showed how to bring the characters we work with to life.
Besting debrief-writing fears
There is more than one way to skin a cat, or in this case, to craft a debrief story with greater imagination and skill. AQR's Communicating Your Story set out alternatives.
Confidence-building bites
The initial briefing meeting with a client can make novice researchers quake in their shoes, but AQR's 'How to boss a briefing meeting' helped them overcome that mindset.
