International Webinar on Research Advising for Qualitative Research

March 25-27, 2021
Via ZOOM Teleconferencing

With institutions giving more premium on quantitative research as evidenced by research pedagogy and praxis more centered on the descriptive, correlational and experimental research, students doing thesis and dissertation in the qualitative kind are often met with setbacks and roadblocks in their journey towards thesis completion. Thus, qualitative research advisers are thrust into a role fraught with paradoxes: being an adviser who is basically a sentry of quality and academic rigor of the student’s scholarly work while also being a coach and mentor who is sage for the apprentice researchers guiding, helping, and building their self-concept as a qualitative researcher in the process. With such an important and delicate role as quality supervisor and qualitative research instructors, how can one become an effective qualitative research adviser that results to publication?

Guiding every research adviser and student through skills development, the Asian Society of Teachers for Research, Inc. invite you to the International Webinar on Research Advising for Qualitative Research on March 25-27, 2021 (1:00 pm- 5:00 pm Philippine Standard Time, daily) via ZOOM Teleconferencing!
