Dr. Annette Lareau

The University of Pennsylvania Predoctoral Training Program in Interdisciplinary Research Methods for Field-based Research in Education, sponsored by the Institute for Education Sciences (IES), welcomes Dr. Annette Lareau to our weekly seminar series.

Doing High-Quality Qualitative Research: A Practical Guide
Presented by Dr. Annette Lareau, Professor of Sociology, University of Pennsylvania

This talk highlights the emergent nature of qualitative data collection. Annette Lareau, drawing on her book, Listening to People: A Practical Guide to Interviewing, Participant Observation, Data Analysis, and Writing It All Up, describes the chaotic reality of qualitative research. She emphasizes that research questions emerge through data collection as well as data analysis of the data. Despite the inherently uncertain character of the research process, some approaches to interviewing and participant-observation lead to higher quality data than other approaches. Lareau will discuss elements of high-quality data collection in interviewing and participant-observation, offering concrete suggestions for improving qualitative research.
