You have been asked to present at a national conference on the work of your Human Services research organization. Select a Human Services research organization to act as a guide this assignment, either in your own region or nationwide. Examples of types of organizations could be the Homelessness Research Institute (national) or Research and Training Center on Community (Minneapolis, MN).
Review the organization’s website and any press releases related to recent research projects. Select one qualitative research project that is of interest to you.
Create an infographic that you will share with conference attendees that addresses the following elements:
– What is the organization and what is their mission? Why does this organization conduct research?
– What was the purpose of this particular study? What question was being asked/explored?
– Who was the target population that was sampled? How many participants were involved in this study?
– What qualitative methods did the researchers utilize? How were the responses compiled and analyzed?
– What were the major results? How does this information further the knowledge in the field?
The infographic does not require APA in-text citations, but a reference list should be included that provides citation information for the organization and the study.
If you are not familiar with creating an infographic, there are free programs available online. Please review the tutorials for these programs: Infogr.am and Piktochart
(I do not know how many charts this project needs to include, so I am paying for 3. If it only needs 1 or 2, that’s completely fine- you don’t have to create more just because I paid for them. I just have no clue. If It requires more than 3 charts- I’ll just lose points on the rubric, no worries. Thank you!)
