Topic Interest Groups

CARMA Topic Interest Groups – Now Free to Everyone (including non-CARMA members)

CARMA Institutional Premium and Basic membership include a benefit for participating faculty and students, the option to join one or more Topic Interest Groups (TIG). Each TIG will meet five times a year and those registered may attend events for all groups. TIGs are established to meet student and faculty researchers’ needs not currently met by CARMA’s Webcast Lecture Series (and its recordings in the CARMA Video Library) and CARMA Live Online Short Courses. This benefit is available at no additional charge (beyond the institution membership fee) and can be accessed by TIG registration in the CARMA Website User Area. The benefit is available throughout the institutional membership period and will end on August 31, 2023. CARMA TIG events will be hosted using the Zoom Meeting platform, with individual live access provided.

CARMA TIGs supplement other CARMA programs by providing:

  1. instruction on specialized research methods topics via Tutorials
  2. access to guidance from noted methodologists through panels
  3. discussion of current research methods articles via review sessions
  4. opportunity to meet and interact with others sharing similar interests with our CARMANetworking Sessions.
