What is "research" from a social constructionist standpoint? What kinds of research practices are most congenial with constructionist ideas and views of scientific knowledge? How can we investigate relational process? These are among the issues to be addressed in this workshop. Special attention will be given to practical examples of qualitative inquiry useful to a wide range of researchers. Discussion will also center on innovative strategies in research, thus enabling researchers to develop research practice maximally suited to their goals. Participants are invited to bring their own research questions and/or projects to share with the group for reflection and collaborative learning.
