Qualitative Research Methods Workshops: An Introduction, Definitions. Readings on Qualitative Research: An Annotated Bibliography.
Robinson, Rhonda S.; Driscoll, Marcy P.
The training of researchers in the educational technology field has continued in the traditional vein of the experimental paradigm. This document describes a workshop presented to balance that training and to prepare students to undertake research in a non-traditional way. The workshop aimed to acquaint students with non-causal naturalistic inquiry and its conduct. Workshop topics included background information; types of qualitative research (case study, ethnography, grounded theory/phenomenology, narrative inquiry, and semiotics and other approaches); topics for educational technology research; data gathering techniques (interview, observation, participant-observation, and literature review); and problems and concerns (analysis, reporting, validity, and reliability). A sheet of definitions in qualitative research is included, as is an annotated bibliography by Phyllis Baker of nine sources. (Contains 45 references.) (SLD)
