Teaching Qualitative Research: A Successful Pilot of an Innovative Approach
Danquah, Adam N.
Psychology Teaching Review, v23 n2 p69-79 2017
This paper describes the development and delivery of an innovative approach to teaching qualitative research methods in psychology. The teaching incorporated a range of "active" pedagogical practices that it shares with other teaching in this area, but was designed in such a way as to follow the arc of a qualitative research project in its entirety over several sessions, whilst episodically dealing with distinct methodological approaches along the way. In line with this design, and the mutuality of the learning, it was called a "qualitative learning series". Following Mason (2002), the paper also considers the challenge of qualitative teaching in the context of academic psychology, and touches upon whether developments in the years since have made for much difference. These strands of the paper come together in how the teaching met these challenges.
