About this course
Students learn about & practice key qualitative methods while gaining exposure to how diverse theoretical lenses make use of these methods. The course covers: interpretation, representation & validity; reflexivity & positionality; power relations & ethics; interviewing; participant observation; actor-network approaches; data collection for discourse analysis; participatory & co-creation research methods; and visual & other sense-based research methods.

- assess the analytical value of different types of methods relative to the student’s own research questions and theoretical framework;
- identify different types of methods’ particular logistical requirements and challenges;
- anticipate ethical issues posed by the use of specific research methods;
- design and reflect on a data collection methods strategy aligned with the student’s own research questions and theoretical framework.
