Research skills: Analysing research designs
Research skills: Analysing Research Designs is designed to provide students insight into the research process. The ‘black box’ of doing research is opened up by making every step in the development of a research design explicit. First it is shown which choices a researcher has to make while developing a research design and, second, students are introduced to the criteria to substantiate (and evaluate) these choices. A particular focus is on the choice of an appropriate qualitative data analysis method which the students apply during the tutor sessions.
