The short course on “Introduction to qualitative research methods for animal health course” to be hosted by the University of Liverpool I’m sure will be interesting looking at the crop of tutors. I was privileged to have Dr Robert Christley as my MSc supervisor in 2011. We did an interesting work in Debre Zeit, Ethiopia where qualitative research methods were adopted for our research later published in journal of Preventive Vet. Medicine in 2014. I could vividly remember the interest generated among students and faculty during my thesis oral presentation. Many among the audience were amazed at how simple tools and methods can generate so much data and information when analyzed. This is one course those within and outside the faculty will not regret attending.
This would be an interesting training and look forward to seeing its outline. I also think the advancement of text mining and analytical techniques would enhance the use of semi-structured interbviews and PE in general. I am looking for a paper that has made that combination happen.
