Advanced Methods Institute (AMI)


The Advanced Methods Institute provides 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. Sponsored by QualLab and the College of Education and Human Ecology, the inaugural Institute took place June 2-4, 2021, in a virtual format and focused on qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods.

Watch for our next AMI to focus on qualitative inquiry in 2023.

AMI Book

Coming in early 2022 – Advancing Culturally Responsive Research and Researchers: Qualitative, Quantitative and Mixed Methods (Pasque & alexander, Eds., Routledge)

The aim of this volume is to provide readers with access to the information shared through AMI’s keynote addresses and interactive workshops, so that they/we better understand frameworks, approaches, and considerations for undertaking more innovative social science research. We hope to advance scholarly discussion on how research methodology and methods may benefit from innovative and cutting-edge strategies that also influence educational equity and social change. Throughout the book, chapter authors illustrate the promise of advancing culturally responsive research – and the importance of our choices as researchers – to extend understandings of inequities and contribute to meaningful change.
