This past spring, for the second year in a row, ATTW sponsored its Research Methods Workshops in conjunction with the ATTW Conference in Atlanta.  Hosted by George Pullman on the campus of George State University, the half-day workshops attracted participants from across the country interested in developing more sophisticated research skills.  Chris Haas from the University of Minnesota joined by Chad Wickham of Auburn University to lead the workshop on Building Conceptual Structures from Qualitative Data.  Jeff Grabill from the University put participants through their paces in the workshop on Research Practices in Action Research.
