**The Advanced Methods Institute has been rescheduled from its original dates of May 13-15, 2020**

The College of Education and Human Ecology and its Data Access & Analysis Core at The Ohio State University are sponsoring a three-day advanced methods institute for faculty, graduate students and researchers interested in cultural sustainability.

This event will provide an opportunity for an open and challenging discussion of the ways in which 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:

  • Bryant Keith Alexander, PhD, professor of communication, culture, performance and pedagogy and dean of the College of Communication and Fine Arts at Loyola Marymount University
  • Jamilia Blake, PhD, associate professor at Texas A&M University
  • Patti Lather, PhD, Professor Emerita, Department of Educational Studies at The Ohio State University

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