Description

This book takes a fresh approach to teaching about qualitative research by providing case studies of various student qualitative research experiences revealing the struggles, joys, discoveries, and surprises that often take place during the qualitative research process. By studying other student examples of research (including obstacles and how they were overcome) students can learn through the real-life experiences of other students. The book is divided into three parts. The book also covers the nuts and bolts of qualitative research, enabling instructors to use this book as a stand alone text.
