Qualitative Approaches: Finding the Right Fit
Start Date: 7/23/2019Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 7/23/2019End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:

Have you ever wondered about qualitative research and how you can use it for your own work?

Together, in this full-day course, we will explore the following five approaches to qualitative research: case study, ethnography, grounded theory, narrative research, and phenomenology.

For each approach we will discuss:

  • Origins and defining features
  • Associated methods
  • Common data analysis and presentation techniques
  • Challenges and/or ethical considerations

No prerequisites but some understanding of the fundamentals of qualitative research is assumed. Please be prepared for group discussions to help clarify and reinforce course concepts.

Participants who wish to do some reading in advance (not mandatory) may wish to explore the following reference as background reading for the session:

  • Creswell, J., & Poth, C. (2017). Qualitative inquiry & research design: Choosing among five approaches (4th ed.). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.

A more comprehensive list of resources will be provided at the end of the course.

This course is a part of a series offered by the Laurier Summer Institute of Research Methods. You can register for this course and others running from July 15 to 26. Students (from any university) get 10% off. Faculty, staff and students paying by internal transfer also save on the tax.
