Join me for a #VitaeWednesday webinar with Vitae, the Chronicle of Higher Education career website!
What did you learn from your research and how can you use it to propel your career forward? A publication list is essential, whether you are trying to compete for a tenure-track faculty position or launch a consulting business. When you publish your work, you position your type of research and findings, and create a public identity. How do you want to be known? What are the options in today’s digital world, and where do you start? Find out when you join us on May 25! See more and register on the Vitae site, where the discussion is already underway!
Beyond the obvious- how does progress on UN Sustainability Goals relate to progress for women? In a recent webinar, Lynn Wilson, Executive Director of SeaTrust Institute and I shared our experiences and insights from the UN Climate Summits and research on women entrepreneurs and leaders.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals include 169 targets, of which at least 30 relate directly to the lives of women and girls in a changing environment. We held a webinar Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 17:00:00 to look at the critical targets and discuss ways to use corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects, research, and partnerships to create a better future for women and girls.
We will focus on three themes:
1. Access to education and training;
2. Inclusive societies; and
3. Sustainable jobs and entrepreneurship.
For each theme,we examined relevant goals and targets, highlight successful examples, and discuss work to be done.
You can view a recording here:

You spent a lot of time conducting research and writing a dissertation, thesis, or capstone project. You are well aware of the pressure to get your work published, in order to get hired or advance in your academic or professional field. Where do you start? I mined every element of her dissertation to launch a publishing strategy that has resulted in five books, numerous chapters and cases, articles and blog posts. I’ve created a typology of five options for drawing from, building on, or applying your student writing. This webinar is relevant those who have graduated recently as well as to people whose dissertations have been sitting on the shelf for a while.
Doing Qualitative Research Online suggests a new way to think about qualitative research design in the digital world.

At each stop on the tour I will offer a free one-hour webinar, and during the subsequent week I will share resources and answer questions in an asynchronous discussion. Follow the tour here– I’ll post descriptions of each new site and add locations to the map!

Go on the (Virtual) Road to Promote Your Book
TAA Blog post: 6 Key takeaways from the TAA webinar, ‘Go on the (Virtual) Road to Promote Your Book.’ The recording is online in the member resources. If you are an academic writer, consider joining!
Whether you are self-publishing or working with a major publisher, you will need to actively promote your textbooks and encourage faculty to adopt them. Traditionally, writers have taken book tours and given talks, but textbook publishers are unlikely to fund world travel. Why not offer a book tour online? With the Doing Qualitative Research Online Virtual Book Tour I did just that. While some “virtual book tours” simply place guest posts or advertisements on potential readers’ sites, my highly interactive approach includes webinars and online discussions with groups or classes. In this one-hour webinar, I will share tales from the virtual road and steps you can take to launch your own tour.
In May I will be offering both full-day training sessions (fee) and half-day seminars (free or discounted for SRA Members) with the Social Research Association in the UK and registration information is now online!

The Qualitative E-Research Framework and Typology of Online Visual Methods provide holistic, systems-thinking approaches to considering choices in the context of research design for studies that make use of highly-interactive, visual and mobile communication technologies (Salmons, 2015, 2012).
