Helping university-level students navigate their qualitative research project with ease
Let me help you move from baffled and bewildered to savvy and skilled
IPA Training Workshops
Workshops comprise a mixture of structured presentation/lecture, practical exercises to help deepen your understanding and develop your research skills, plus the opportunity for Q&A and discussion in a small group setting so that you can be assured of a good level of personal attention for your research dilemmas
Students receive a resource pack for each session containing the session slides, handouts, plus a guided reading and resources list to support their learning
Workshop numbers are limited to a maximum of ten participants so you can be guaranteed useful small group exercises and the full attention of your facilitator
All workshops are delivered online using Zoom

What students from the June round of workshops have said
Elena’s workshops were amazing – she shares her knowledge in such an accessible way, and reinforces this with a variety of materials to use later.
The workshop groups were small, meaning we all got to know each other and felt able to ask questions and share experiences.
Elena’s enthusiasm for IPA is infectious – I feel more informed, focussed and better able to progress my analysis now. Thank you, Elena!
Hollie, workshops 2, 3 and 4, June 2021
I felt the course was well described and did what it said on the tin! Perfect timing and content to support me with my first IPA for my Masters dissertation. Resource pack was excellent bonus and I am sure I will be referring back to it as I progress.
Absolutely, nice flowing blend of theory and practical applications, up to date references and insights, clearly shared with passion and energy. I feel much better prepared to start and then progress with my analysis in a more professional and rigorous manner.
Knowing I have resources to refer back to as a comfort blanket is really nice. Feel much less ’alone’ with the task that looms ahead. Thank you.
Please keep your zest and obvious passion for these workshops and their content. It is so energising as a student to be taught by someone with an obvious love and commitment to the quality of what they do.
Vikki, Intro to IPA Data Analysis, June 2021
Elena’s workshop provided exactly the knowledge, guidance, empathic support and scaffolding I needed.
She always remembered that our projects differed widely in both topic and level of study, continuously pointing out how to adapt to the requirements of each level, which I’m sure made it feel relevant to every participant.
Having felt stuck and overwhelmed, I now feel inspired and able to move forward.
