Qualitative Research Lab (QRL) – Archive

“Collaborate, Innovate, Disseminate”


Funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the UPEI Qualitative Research Lab (QRL) provides a range of equipment and training to outfit researchers for field work in the community and a facility to analyze data and prepare scholarly works.

The Lab provides remote data acquisition technology to help researchers capture stories, experiences, and cultures of interest. Researchers access transcription, analysis, and dissemination technologies and use the QRL’s state of the art Co-Laboratory to meet and share information with researchers around the world, using Skype or Adobe Connect.
