Abstract Submission Deadline: February 5, 2023
We are thrilled to announce the 9th TTRA Qualitative Research Methods Workshop! The overall conference theme is GATEWAY TO THE FUTURE: How research, data & technology are changing the way strategic decisions are being made by destination and tourism organizations. The content for this year’s qualitative workshop will follow alongside this theme focusing on Envisioning the Future: progresses and challenges in a changing world, however, we welcome all submissions based on qualitative methods and data. We welcome innovative methodological approaches, critical assessments of tourism and other creative methodologies.
This year’s conference will be in–person. The qualitative workshop is designed to provide opportunities for attendees to learn from each other through roundtable presentations that focus on discussion and engagement with a small audience. These roundtable presentations do not utilize powerpoints, but rather other presentation aids are encouraged (e.g., audio files, short videos, photographs, interactive methods, etc.). In addition, workshop attendees will participate in hands-on learning activities and discussions with a featured qualitative keynote speaker.
