The Teaching Qualitative Psychology Group was founded in 2005 as a specialist teaching interest group within the HEA (Forrester & Koutsopoulou, 2008). In 2015 the group became part of the BPS QMiP section. Our aim is to explore the challenges and support good practice in relation to the teaching of qualitative psychology. At the 2017 QMiP conference we hosted a workshop about teaching qualitative methods and during the session we asked attendees what challenges they faced in their teaching of qualitative methods. Over the years we have conducted several events and workshops and we have noticed similarities in the kind of issues that emerge. In the following piece, we present five common challenges and some of the responses and practices that have been successful for us and our colleagues.
