IA093 | Spring | 6 ECTS

This course aims to introduce students to qualitative research methods, and to familiarize them with the basic tenets of conducting research of this nature. With a practical focus on direct/participant observation, text analysis, and interviewing techniques, students will carry out independent 'mini'€ projects to hone the skills necessary to carry out such research on their own, as well as evaluate and critique research conducted by others. Students will also be familiarized with NVivo, a popular database used to manage and analyze qualitative data.
