Trying to contrast literature review (LR) from theoretical framework (TF)?
The LR synthesizes existing knowledge re. the research problem.
The TF provides a lens for analyzing & explaining the data.
A good research study must ADVANCE the literature but usually only USES the TF.
1) a Foucauldian analysis (TF) of emotional labor (LR).
2) identifying functions of humor (LR) using sensemaking theory (TF)
3) understanding work-life balance (LR) through a structurational lens (TF)
Knowing at least some of the related literature at the beginning of a study is fundamental for research design, appropriate research questions, etc. Most folks don't want to spend years of their life illuminating a problem that already has a clear solution. But...

1/ Gender Bias in Student Evaluations of Teaching: ‘Punish[ing] Those Who Fail To Do Their Gender Right’

Our big #qualitative analysis (386,277 unique responses!) published in Higher Education…
2/Our findings suggest that student evaluations of teaching seem to measure *conformity with gendered expectations* rather than teaching quality

A cause for concern given the integration of SET data into performance profiles, and management and organisation of teaching practice
3/Before I go on, in terms of the necessarily binary reporting, it is very important to say here that we recognise the ‘pluralities inherent in gender(s)’ that complicate simple binary approaches to gender (Weerawardhana, 2018, p.189), and we do discuss this in the paper

So before I get onto more about my current work, I though I'd do a quick thread to share my background and how I got to where I am today
I was born in South Africa, and grew up in Francistown, Botswana

Today Botswana has one of the world's fastest-growing economies, but it's history includes being colonised as a British Protectorate, gaining independence in 1966

I completed my undergraduate degree in Human Movement Science and honours degree in Sport Science at @UPTuks in Pretoria, South Africa

New research from @DrAimeeGrant @sara_wyn_jones @KatWilliams123 @AutisticUK @DrSchniff @Prof_AmyBrown, who reviewed Autistic people's experiences of infant feeding (breast- and formula- feeding) including healthcare support

🧵by @DrAimeeGrant… (1/11)
#Breastfeeding is encouraged because of known health benefits, but it is not easy and many parents experience challenges.

Due to differences in how Autistic people experience pain and bodily sensations, we thought that they may find breastfeeding harder. (2/11)
It's worth mentioning here that the research team was led by an Autistic woman, with two Autistic women who had experience of infant feeding themselves also part of the team. It was funded by the Research Wales Innovation Fund, part of @SwanseaUni (3/11)

The political momentum for reforming the #EU 🇪🇺 #fiscal framework is larger than ever. We are excited to share our freshly published feasibility & impact analysis of the reform proposals with you:… (1/15)➡️ Image
Recovering from the #pandemic and simultaneously achieving #environmental, #social and #economic goals requires large amounts of public funding and therefore ample #fiscal flexibility for #EU member states. (2/15)
And with all eyes on #COP26 this week, and the discussion about the scale and pace of investment for #ClimateAction high on the agenda, the discussion about how to create the fiscal flexibility for investments such as these has never been more timely (3/15)

Things are tough in #EmergencyDepartments, right now. We surveyed 1372 NZ ED staff, measuring their burnout & identifying what can be done to improve their #workplacewellbeing Our 1st paper has been published #OpenAccess… (Thread 1/8)
ED staff are VERY resilient. We face daily exposure to the illness, injury, intoxication, violence & distress of others. These findings resonate with other #wellbeing research suggesting social & organisational factors – as well as personal strategies - are key (2/8)
To provide a coherent, actionable analysis of a #qualitative data set > 100,000 words, we reported key themes under summary domains:
1. Facilitators: What matters most?
2. Barriers: What gets in the way?
3. Opportunities: What can be done? (3/8)

I state, highlight, mark up, not insinuate
Why is someone who likely does not menstruate a sudden expert on #womenshealth to identify a WOC seeking #data #quality & #integrity as the women?
"Respecting" social science = using respectable methods, not online surveys.
What you see in the tweet and the "study" is ego, defensiveness & flagrant Dunning-Kruger effect for #womenshealth, #menstrualhealth, #COVID19, #vaccine #research.

The best way to demonstrate the value of a field is to be consistent on #quality not…
Academic language on #online #survey #data:
"systematically assess carelessness in a crowdsourced sample" Denial that quick & dirty is poor #quality is an odd use of time & ineffective. One could better defend one's merit, by delivering #quality per best practices and standards.

Do #qualitative interviews cause #distress when used for sensitive topics and/or in sensitive populations?
A thread (& case study with #cancer #survivors).
2/5 #Qualitative research is ideally suited to gain rich insights into human experience, including those with medical conditions and at-risk groups.

But, one #barrier to conducting #qualitative interviews is concern (often from physicians or IRB/ethics) of causing #distress
3/5 Yet, data on distress around #qualitative #interviews with medical pops is lacking.

In our new #PsychoOncologypaper, #AYA #cancersurvivors completed a validated distress screening tool before, after & 1 week after an interview on #fearofrecurrence…

One of the main things that stops good #qualitative research from being GREAT is that people get stuck during that ephemeral step between coding/thematizing and interpretation/claim-making.😩

Some musings and tips to help in this process:
As @ProfWay has pointed out, for most qual researchers, line-by-line coding is not necessary or appropriate on ALL of the study's empirical materials.
Choose a portion of your data (I recommend a maximum variation) for emergent coding, then check whether the codes are answering your RQ. If so, create a codebook & begin laying codes on top of the data. Do they work? Great. If not, go back & adapt. This is the iterative approach!

Our #qualitative study exploring the experiences of people involved in #participation and #involvement for the design and delivery of #CAMHS has just been submitted for publication, but we didn't want to wait to share some key findings and resources with you! Image
Following a #research and service development meeting to design a new staff-based intervention for inpatient #CAMHS (Follow @StudyTric and me for updates in due course), we asked those present to tell us about their experiences of being involved.
In line with @NIHRinvolvement guidelines, our group included all those with a stake in the intervention and lived experience of the context: young people, family members and frontline clinicians all sharing their expertise alongside researchers and clinical academics.

#Remdesivir begins distribution in the #USA today via #EUA.

I thought would write down some practical #tips based on my #qualitative anecdotal experience after personally treating close to 200 patients with #COVID19.

For quantitative results, wait for the papers¬—thread
“this juice works, doc!” When you hear similar expressions 1-2 days after starting #remdesivir multiple times, you start to wonder. Don't recall a similar proportion of patients smile after feeling so sick 1-2 days earlier with #COVID19. x/n? Wait for the papers.
Like #treatment for any severe infectious disease (meningitis, Gram-negative bacteremia, influenza pneumonia, etc), earlier is always better. #COVID19 is no different. #Remdesivir stops #SARS-CoV2 replication, but won’t heal the lung injury.

My previous threads on #qualitative #interviewing referred mainly to one-to-one, semi-structured interviews. Research interviews, however, can be conducted in more than one way. #1 @AcademicChatter #phdchat #QualitativeResearch
@AcademicChatter In this thread, some different ways to conduct interviews are discussed, so have a look and see whether a different format could help answer your research question better. #2
@AcademicChatter The social research literature categorises research interviews roughly into #structured, semi-structured, and unstructured interviews based on the degree of #planning or preparation from the interviewer’s side and the #leeway available for participants in their responses. #3

1/ In honor of #COPD Awareness Month, let’s solve the prevailing problem of rare #palliativecare (PC) in COPD, especially early.

See our qual exploration of clinicians in @PalliativeMed_j…

Care to take a stroll?

#pallipulm @pallipulm
2/ First, a PSA:

Waiting for PC until end-stage #copd is too late & misses a golden opportunity to meet COPD patient & family needs earlier in the trajectory.

See our @AnnalsATS pub….

@AnnalsATS will have a podcast on that soon, so stay tuned!
3/ Contrast “late” (the status quo if at all) to “early” PC, which brings comprehensive palliative & supportive care to patients & families before end-stage disease.

Others have explored PC in COPD.

The key here is “early”.

Lots to learn from #qualitative research!

🔥 My first academic article about the populist radical right in the media in #Belgium #Netherlands & #Luxembourg is out now in the International Journal of Press/Politics. 🔥…
I interviewed 46 EICs in the Benelux & asked them how they deal with right-wing #populism. Turns out that there are huge differences:
In Wallonia & Luxembourg, journalists adhere to strict ostracism. In Flanders & Netherlands, they are more accommodating.

Layman summary:
Best way to end 2018! It’s been a loooooong journey.
Thanks to all the interviewees who took time to speak to me @ADnl @telegraaf @volkskrant @nrc @trouw @NOS @100komma7 @Wort_LU @tageblatt_lu @demorgen @RTBF @destandaard @letzjournal @lesoir @WOXXHEBDO etc.

My answer to Why do you need to use Visual UI regression testing?…
Code related Regression Testing practices can’t be implemented in the same way in Visual UI. The reason being Visual UI are tested through behavioral #Usability Testing methods Qualitatively and Quantitatively. They should not be tested through Opinionated Approach.
There is no absolute way to decide proximity of a UI Element through opinion, on adding a new feature. Qualitative and Quantitative Usability Testing is relative and not absolute. Heuristic Evaluation (thumb rule approach to evaluate a UI by an Expert) is Opinionated

Important process differences within #thematicanalysis family: small q (deductive, coding reliability concerns, qual data in quant thinking) vs big Q (data driven, open flexible organic coding), middle q (training with @ginnybraun @QRNHub)
But what’s a theme @ginnybraun? Domain summaries - cluster responses to a q or issue but lots of meaning variation within eg a single theme that covers ‘risks and benefits of x’ #thisisbad
Vs meaning based themes - an underlying idea or concept that holds the data together (data may look superficially different but is united by the idea) #thisisgood @ginnybraun @QRNHub

1. I was asked for some sources one could follow if one wanted to disrupt dominant methodologies while doing critical social science/educational research. This thread is my response. I hope you'll read & share. #AcademicTwitter #PhD #phdchat
2. First, my conceptualization of critical: anything that interrogates power relations, such as race, class, gender, intersectionality work, culture work, disability work, sexual orientation work, etc. #AcademicTwitter #PhD #phdchat #qualitaitvresearch #quallove
3. It's important to explore/document why you're drawn to this work/topic. Not through sterile academic reasoning but through sensory, embodied, experiences, inner calling. What were your critical milestones that brought you to this work, aspirations, fear, etc. #AcademicTwitter
