Course Description & Objectives
The course introduces participants to the various qualitative research strategies used to design and conduct qualitative research projects. By the end of the course, participants will be able to distinguish between the various traditions of qualitative inquiry (such as ethnography, case study, narrative inquiry, phenomenology, grounded theory, biography and oral history) both in terms of data collection technique and use of analytical tools. To make the course practical, participants will critically review work already published in these traditions and develop a research proposal related to their area of interest and in the tradition of their choice.
