PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

This seminar introduces students to the design, conduct, evaluation, and presentation of qualitative research. Issues of “quality” (trustworthiness and dependability) and robustness in data collection, analysis, and interpretation are discussed. The roles of theory and research questions in the choice of methodology are also discussed. In addition, students are exposed to the philosophical and epistemological underpinnings of methodology. Finally, the seminar focuses on employment of ethical as well as effective field practices.

The main aim is to familiarize students with the methods so that they themselves can carry it out in their own scholarly research. However, we will also mention (briefly) the managerial use of interpretive research for marketing and business decisions.

Learning Goals are:
1. Grasping the epistemological bases of qualitative research
2. Grasping the interrelatedness of theory and methodology
3. Constructing a viable interpretive study design
4. Collecting rich and insightful data using a variety of methods
5. Analyzing and interpreting qualitative data
6. Employing ethical and effective field practices
7. Evaluating the quality of a study
8. Writing proposals and writing for publication
 

The seminar also offers possibilities for young researchers to get in contact with their peers, to explore new avenues of thinking, to learn collectively and to exchange ideas in a very active and stimulating way.

Students will be active participants in guided activities such as data analysis.
