Assignment: qualitative research approaches matrix, part ii

 

n order for you to select the qualitative research approach that best fits your research question, you will need to develop a deeper familiarity with the approaches available to you. This week’s Assignment is the second of a two-part activity designed to broaden and deepen your base of knowledge of qualitative research approaches.

In Week 2, you began completing a Qualitative Research Approaches Matrix Template with four qualitative research approaches. For this week’s Assignment, you will add to that matrix by including four more research approaches.

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Review this week’s readings, focusing on the differences among the following four qualitative research approaches:
    • Social constructionism and narrative inquiry
    • Systems theory
    • Ethnography/autoethnography
    • Interactive and participatory qualitative applications
  • Locate the Qualitative Research Approaches Matrix Template you completed from last week’s Assignment submission.
