VIRTUAL SCHEDULE

Registration for the 2021 Advanced Methods Institute is now closed. We have met the number of registrants our virtual format will allow. We hope you join us in future years.

Pre-Conference for McNair Scholars: Tuesday, June 1, 2021

All McNair attendees and advanced undergraduate scholar attendees are invited to attend the “Budding Experts” session prior to the Institute from 1:00pm-2:30pm EST. For more information, click here.

Day 1: Wednesday, June 2, 2021

AMI 2021, organized by the College of Education & Human Ecology’s QualLab, will start at noon on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 with Dr. Sylvia Hurtado, Professor of Education, UCLA, as the keynote speaker.

Participants will then break into Qualitative and Quantitative groups and work the rest of the afternoon with Dr. Bryant Keith Alexander, Professor of Communication and Performance Studies, Interim Dean of School of Film and Television, Dean of College of Communication and Fine Arts, Loyola Marymount University (Qual) and Dr. Odis Johnson, Jr., Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Executive Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Healthy Schools, and Director of the Institute in Critical Quantitative, Computational, and Mixed Methodologies, Johns Hopkins University (Quant).

During registration, please choose the track (quantitative or qualitative) of most interest to you. This will not limit you to every breakout session in that track; both contain information about mixed methods.

A virtual Mix & Mingle will happen from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm where attendees can network and get to know other attendees.

Note that all conference sessions, including keynotes, workshops, and breakout spaces, will feature live captioning (CC).

Land Acknowledgement

We support the Land Acknowledgement developed by The Ohio State University Office of Diversity and Inclusion; find the full statement here. We, the Advanced Methods Institute team, acknowledge central Ohio as the traditional homeland of the Shawnee Nation, Miami, Wyandotte and other Indigenous nations who have strong ties to these lands. Today, individuals from a broad range of Indigenous backgrounds call Columbus and central Ohio home. There is a long history of violent and harmful research “on” Indigenous communities and, while some of this continues today, the Advanced Methods Institute is dedicated to educating scholars on working “with” Indigenous communities, if invited, and going beyond “doing no harm.” Though we will be gathering virtually, we encourage all attendees to take intentional time to learn about the land from which they are joining us; this resource offers an excellent starting point for those who wish to learn more.

Post-Conference for McNair Scholars: Friday, June 4, 2021

All McNair attendees and advanced undergraduate scholar attendees are invited to attend the “Budding Experts” wrap-up session after the conclusion of the Institute from 1:00pm-2:30pm EST. For more information, click here.
