For this assignment, you will build on your assignment from last
week and further explore how you might examine your research
using a qualitative methodology. Respond to the following questions:
Restate the research problem, purpose, and research questions you developed previously and incorporate any faculty feedback
How might fieldwork and observation be used to answer your research questions? What role would fieldnotes play in this process?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using observation?
How might interviewing be used to answer your research questions? Would you use face-to-face interviews or electronic interviews?
Why or why not? Would you interview participants individually or in a group? Why or why not? What are the advantages and
disadvantages to using interviews to collect your data?
Discuss ethical issues to consider with these qualitative data collection methods.
It is also important to consider how you might code the potential data you collect. Krathwohl (2009) lists 14 steps to consider in coding
and analysis. Reflect how each step would apply/be used in the hypothetical research scenario you have been considering.
