This course reviews the foundations of qualitative design, investigating the history, philosophy, key concepts and terms, and nature of qualitative research. Examples of different types of qualitative research and assessment issues will be discussed, specifically focusing on the main qualitative traditions (case study, phenomenology, ethnography, narrative, historical, and action research). Topics will include: conceptualizing research questions, reviewing the literature, selection of appropriate design and methods of data collection, positionality, logic and coherency of research procedures/methods; interpretation of findings, establishing quality and rigor; research writing and reading, Institutional Review Board policies with respect to human subjects; and ethical issues. Students will read and evaluate qualitative research, conduct components of qualitative research, and identify methodological elements and issues.

This course builds and expands on ED 574 Survey of Qualitative Research and examines qualitative research designs and the use of theory in qualitative research. The course will introduce ethnography, phenomenology, case study, narrative, historical and action research designs. Each design will be explored through four overarching theoretical lenses (organizational, economic, critical, and learning), allowing students to understand the role of theory in guiding and informing research design and methods. The aim of the course is to give students the tools to conceptualize their thesis or dissertation work.
Prereq: ED 574 or Permission.

This course builds and expands on ED 589 Theoretical Applications and Design of Qualitative Research and is designed for graduate students who intend to conduct qualitative research. This course is an advanced seminar to assist in developing skills in data analysis and the presentation of qualitative research findings. It will focus on contemporary discourse among qualitative researchers concerning the analysis of qualitative data. Theoretical foundations learned in ED 574 and ED 589 will be revisited as participants examine the ways in which theory informs and guides analysis and interpretation. Assignments are designed to facilitate the interaction between data, analysis, writing, and the literature.
Prereq: ED 574 and ED 589.
