Generalising from Qualitative Research (GQR): A new old approach

Generalising from Qualitative Research (GQR): A new old approach


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Dr John Guenther Research Leader - Education and Training, BIITE Adjunct – Northern Institute & Professor Ian Falk Supervisory Board Member Indonesian Biosecurity Foundation (IBF)

Date: Apr 09, 2019

Time: 10:30am to 11:30am

Contact person:  The Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 6854
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open to the Public - All Welcome - Please Share

Abstract
In this presentation we debunk a long-held myth that generalisation is primarily the domain of quantitative research. Based on a review of modern and historical approaches to generalisation, we argue that generalisation from qualitative research (GQR) can be achieved, not through a process of self-justification, but through defensible and rigorous research design and methods. We go on to consider examples from their own qualitative research work spanning the last 20 years, mostly in the Northern Territory and Indonesia. From these examples we offer mechanisms that qualitative researchers can employ to generalise from their findings. We suggest that generalisation is achieved through a process of generalisation cycles (GCs) which produce normative truth statements (NTSs), which in turn can be contested or confirmed with theory and empirical evidence.

About Dr John Guenther
John Guenther is a researcher with 20 years’ experience working in overlapping fields of social inquiry, typically in areas related to education and training, and its intersections with mental health and wellbeing, justice, employment, child protection and welfare. In the last 10 years he has more intentionally focussed on issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in remote parts of Australia. He led the Remote Education Systems project under the CRC for Remote Economic Participation (2011-2016) and is currently the Research Leader for Education and Training with the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education, based in Darwin, Northern Territory. John is a leading academic in the field of remote education and has published widely on his findings, often under the banner of ‘Red Dirt Thinking’.

About Professor Ian Falk
Professor Ian Falk is Supervisor, Board of the Indonesian Biosecurity Foundation (IBF). Ian has published more than 200 books, chapters and journal articles in community and regional development and well-being, social capital, leadership, policy and qualitative research methodologies. From 2016, while Ian was a Professor at Charles Darwin University (CDU), he worked extensively in Indonesia where he was Coordinator of the Bilateral Plant Biosecurity Initiative (BPBI), a national Indonesian collaborative research network. Ian is also Adjunct Professor at Universitas Mahasaraswati Denpasar, Bali (UNMAS), and Universitas Andi Djemma (UNANDA) in Palopo, Southern Sulawesi where he is also International Advisor to the research Center for Social Ecology and Biodiversity.

Impact assessment in the 21st Century: A focus on social and cultural sustainability in developing the North

Impact assessment in the 21st Century: A focus on social and cultural sustainability in developing the North


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Jane Munday (Northern Institute, PhD Candidate)

Date: Apr 11, 2019

Time: 2:00pm

Contact person:  Professor Rolf Gerritsen
T: 08 8959 5256
E: rolf.gerritsen@cdu.edu.au

Location:  CDU Alice Springs, Higher Education Lecture Theatre (Entrance 2 off Grevillea Drive)

Tailings dams collapses, protests against coal mines and disgruntled citizens have put impact assessment in the spotlight. Half a century after the first impact assessment legislation, the challenge of the 21st century is better consideration of the issues that matter to communities and giving the people a voice in decision-making.

Jane Munday is a PhD candidate at the Northern Institute of Charles Darwin University. She has been researching models of cultural and social impact assessment that will deliver sustainable social, cultural, ecological and economic Development of the North, paying particular attention to more participatory processes.

Jane will discuss the preliminary findings of her research. This has included an audit of all environmental impact assessments done in the Northern Territory since the Ranger Uranium Mine in 1974. She will outline the findings of interviews with regulators, Aboriginal organisations, NGOs, companies, social and environmental practitioners around Australia exploring the evolution of impact assessment. She will then discuss dimensions of quality impact assessment, interviewees’ perceptions of gaps in current practice and how social and cultural impact assessment can better inform good decision-making. She will conclude with some thoughts on solutions.

Jane is a community engagement and social impact assessment practitioner who has lived in the Northern Territory for 25 years. She has qualifications in journalism, psychology, business management, public participation and social impact assessment.

Seminar hosted by Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand

Australia-India Construction Waste Management Workshop

Australia-India Construction Waste Management Workshop


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Charles Darwin University, The University of Melbourne and The Energy and Resources Institute (India)

Date: Apr 23, 2019 to Apr 24, 2019

Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm

Contact person:  Deepika Mathur, Research Fellow, Northern Institute
T: +61 8 89595214
E: deepika.mathur@cdu.edu.au

Location:  DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Esplanade, Darwin NT

Target audience:  This free event is open to the public. Registration is required.

Construction and demolition waste (CDW) represents 40% of all waste sent to landfill. Population growth and increasing global construction activity is leading to continuing growth in waste generation. Reducing CDW and diverting it from landfill is critical with existing landfills rapidly being exhausted and fewer viable options for waste offshoring. Appropriate waste management has benefits and challenges from a social, environmental and economic perspective.

This workshop will bring together key representatives from industry, local, state and federal government and peak industry bodies to discuss the social, environmental and economic issues associated with construction waste management and identify opportunities and potential solutions to these problems.

This collaborative workshop is being facilitated by internationally recognised experts in waste management and construction from Charles Darwin University The University of Melbourne The Energy and Resources Institute (India).

See the workshop program.

Places are limited, please register to attend.

Find out more about the project at the DFAT website.
