Only two weeks left to submit your TQ & AQM abstracts!

This year IIQM is once again hosting their 14th annual Thinking Qualitatively Workshop (TQ) Series in conjunction with their 13th annual Advances In Qualitative Methods (AQM) conference.

TQ (June 16-22, 2014) is a five day interdisciplinary educational series aimed at participants from all academic disciplines and for individuals at all stages of their research career. Thinking Qualitatively allows participants to engage with experts in qualitative inquiry and learn about specific methods, techniques and approaches to qualitative research. Participants have the opportunity to present their academic posters and be entered into a poster contest to win a great prize!

AQM (June 23-25) is an internationally attended conference which brings together researchers from multiple disciplines. Participants have the opportunity to present their research in a variety of methods such as a poster presentation, an oral presentation, a symposium and more. This year’s theme is Progressing Applied Qualitative Research with the well respected Rosaline Barbour, Ph.D. providing the keynote address.

Time is running out for you to take advantage of a great opportunity to present your research at one or both events. Abstract submission closes at 11:59pm MST on Thursday, February 27, 2014.
