Primary Instructor:

This one-term introduction to qualitative research methods will emphasize the use of such techniques in an action research framework. Several class discussions will focus on ways of gathering data suitable for qualitative analysis, and several sessions will focus on analytic techniques especially useful with qualitative data. Several data sets will be available for students to work with. Questions of research design and utilization of findings will consider research-field relationships, and the issues involved in alignment with various parties in social disputes and controversies. In addition to individual assignments, students will be asked to wok in small groups to create a research report.
