Advancing Culturally Responsive Research and Researchers
Virtual Conference
Wednesday, June 02, 2021 to Friday, June 04, 2021

The College of Education and Human Ecology and the Office of Research, Innovation and Collaboration at The Ohio State University are sponsoring a three-day advanced methods institute for faculty, graduate students and researchers interested in cultural responsive research.

This event will provide an opportunity for an open and challenging discussion of the ways in which qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research methods impact the cultural relevance and sustainability of scholarly research in the social-behavioral sciences. The institute is a series of workshops, with each focusing on a methodological issue (e.g., sampling, design, measurement and data collection, data analysis) that has key implications for the protection of cultural identities, traditions and ways of life.  

Each day of the institute features two workshops conducted by expert researchers. Workshops will build attendees’ skills, highlight issues relevant to research among diverse populations, and employ examples from data sets which address issues which are culturally relevant.

Speakers include:

  • Sylvia Hurtado, professor of education, director of The Higher Education Research Institute, University of California
  • Patti Lather, Professor Emerita, Department of Educational Studies at The Ohio State University
  • Bryant Keith Alexander, dean of the College of Communication and Fine Arts at Loyola Marymount University, and professor of communication, culture, performance and pedagogy

More details on the schedule, presenters and how to register are available at the event's website.
