How do we research and how can we tell the difference between good and bad research? This is not an abstract question for those who intend to do postgraduate research. This course covers how to develop a good research topic, how to design successful projects and the practical skills to conduct qualitative field work. Issues of design and discovery are relevant to many students, but practical focus relates to the qualitative research tradition. This course is focused on the needs of business students but is also relevant to other areas of social science. The central activity to all of this is to develop a reflective understanding of the rules and expectation for good research in each disciplinary area. Therefore the reflective process is the core element of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
On completion of this course, students should be able to:
- evaluate the quality of qualitative research,
- write a qualitative research proposal,
- plan and execute a qualitative research project, and
- Apply good research design to the formulation of research question(s), the design of methods and the use of theory in qualitative research
