This interactive workshop is designed for doctoral students and faculty members who are new to process research. In the first part of the workshop, participants will gain theoretical knowledge from presentations by two scholars with extensive experience in conducting process research. In the interactive second part, participants will apply what they have learned during the first part of the workshop to their own research ideas and methodological practice. For this purpose, participants will be organized in small groups, each of which will be facilitated by a process research expert. Within each group, participants will present and discuss their research ideas and the challenges they are currently facing. To make effective use of the group sessions, participants will be asked to submit a short description of their research idea when they sign up for the workshop. At the end of the workshop, participants will have (1) gained knowledge about how to apply a process lens to their research, (2) improved their research ideas, and (3) tested their ideas among a group of friendly reviewers. The small group sessions will also enable participants to connect with experts as well as novice scholars who share an interest in process research.
