Overview. Unit two of Bhattacharya covers the many ways you can approach qualitative research. And you are perhaps thinking that there seems to be a lot of different ways to do qualitative research. In this post, please do the following:
1) Identify two different types of qualitative research that are particularly appealing to you. Provide a good summary from Bhattacharya as part of your response. In what ways are these types very similar? In what ways do they differ?
2) What is appealing to you about these particular modes? Why these modes and not others (here is an opportunity to show me that you read the entire unit)?
3) Considering the reading from last week, what are the benefits of these kinds of research? What are some things you need to watch out for.
Specifics. Your post should be between 250 and 300 words and should demonstrate to me that you've read the entire assigned reading.
