Crafting and Conducting High-Quality Qualitative Research (March 19-26, 2022)


The workshop was very well designed and implemented. Many thanks to Dr. Vijayata for explaining extremely important elements of the Qualitative research that are seemingly simple but difficult for researchers to implement while crafting a research. Looking forward for learning more from her. Thanks to team SkillsEdge to organize such a series of workshops. Manasi Vahia (Doctoral Student - TISS, Mumbai)

Her command in the language was greatly helpful, it was clear and precise and I feel she really helped a novice like me to understand, grasp the vast learning of Qualitative Research. Prof. Prabina Rajbhandari (Kathmandu University School of Management)

It was extremely helpful and the teacher was very honest and forthcoming. She has rich knowledge and has shared many important insights. Thanks a lot! However, if you can share the material especially papers which we discuss during class, it will be helpful. Seema Das (NITIE, Mumbai)

The content was really good and the instructor was very patient. Interpritivist approach was covered in details. It would be a holistic course on Qualitative if we could have one session specific to case studies and positivist approach. Neelam Birthare (Doctoral Student - IIT Bombay)

The workshop was conducted in an excellent manner. The instructor’s research experience and writing were extremely useful in making the workshop even more valuable. More such workshops on specific qualitative research methods by Prof. Doshi and other scholars would much appreciated! Prof. Kanika Khurana (University of Mumbai)
