Assessment name: Qualitative research design
Brief Description: You will be provided with a qualitative research article to critique. The critique will involve the identification of the strengths and limitations in the design of the study based upon the principles and assumptions of good research design consistent with realising the article’s stated research purpose(s) from a qualitative perspective. On this basis individuals will then develop an alternative research design consistent with realising the research purpose(s), again based upon the principles of good research design, from a qualitative perspective. Opportunities to practice article critique and designing qualitative research based upon the principles of good research design will be provided in class. Conceptual material to support design decisions is provided on Blackboard. Note that this assessment does not involve data collection.
