The Qualitative Research Interest Group (QRIG) was formed in 2017 as a peer support network to encourage and support rigorous, methodological, and ethically sound qualitative and mixed methods research.  Our focus is to build capacity and resources as well as share knowledge across Melbourne Children’s Campus. We support researchers by: 

  • Fostering relationships within and between research groups, 
  • Establishing peer-to-peer support networks, 
  • Raising awareness of qualitative and mixed methods research through our monthly meetings, 
  • Developing resources to support cross-campus capacity building,  
  • Promoting consultation and collaboration across the Melbourne Children’s Campus  

Our resources

QRIG meetings

We hold monthly meetings on different days and at different times to ensure access to at least some meetings for those with regular clinics and commitments. This is an opportunity to network with others interested in qualitative and mixed methods research. The QRIG also aims to build capacity by exploring topics that increase knowledge about different methodologies, analysis techniques and issues relevant to qualitative research.

Recordings from past meetings are routinely uploaded to the MCTC/CDRO YouTube channel. These recordings are a useful resource on topics relevant to qualitative research.
