multiple doctoral students and faculty members from the same program).

Who Can Apply? Anyone interested in research methodology can apply, especially (1) doctoral students seeking to deepen their expertise in research methodology; and (2) junior faculty seeking professional development. All participants will require a computer and a good Internet connection.

Do I Need to Be a Methods Researcher to Participate? No! The consortium is open to researchers of all areas who wish to strengthen and develop their methodological skills.
