In this course, we examine qualitative research by considering various qualitative methodologies as well as qualitative research design. Discussion and readings will focus on the place of qualitative methods in educational research, the epistemological foundations within qualitative methods, the role of theory in qualitative research, methods for responsibly collecting qualitative research, systematic analysis and management of data, and representation of findings. Throughout the course, we pay close attention to our positionality and its impact on qualitative research. Furthermore, we will discuss the ethical issues involved in problem posing and solving inherent in conducting research.
