DID YOU KNOW?

An Nvivo10 training workshop was offered to faculty and PhD students to support qualitative and mixed methods research. We offered the training workshop for a second time, due to an increased interest in qualitative data analysis. The qualitative research lab on the Dallas campus is now fully equipped and we have provided Nvivo10 training to 27 qualitative researchers. 
Thanks to the Qualitative Committee members Dr. Noralyn Pickens Occupational Therapy, Dr. Kyoung-Eun Lee Nursing, and Dr. Mary Thompson Physical Therapy for the growing interest in qualitative research that we are experiencing at TWU.
