Abstract

Qualitative research methods have gained popularity inside and outside the academic world. Researchers have shown growing interest in understanding an issue through qualitative, and not just quantitative, lenses. In Qualitative Research for Beginners, the author explains the underpinnings of qualitative research paradigms and the know-how of completing a basic qualitative research project. In the book, you’ll find: an overview of the underlying issues in differentiating qualitative and quantitative research; basic approaches and process flow in conducting qualitative research; an extensive discussion on steps in conducting a doable qualitative research project; and a basic tool in reporting qualitative findings. Whether you’re a new researcher, undergraduate or postgraduate student, or educational practitioner with little or no background in qualitative research, you’ll get the insights and instructions you need to complete basic qualitative research projects. Filled with simple examples and illustrations, this book helps you make sense of the richest of information to yield simple, meaningful findings.
