Unit 5 – Methodology and Data – INTRODUCTION

As you read the literature, you will find various terminologies used to describe qualitative design, including qualitative methodologies and qualitative approaches.

Once you have developed a research question, the next step is to apply an appropriate qualitative research methodology (that is, ethnography, case study, grounded theory, generic qualitative inquiry, or phenomenology) to the research question. When choosing a research methodology, it is essential that the  researcher chooses a methodology that matches the research question. Each methodology is designed to answer a certain type of question, and this match between question and methodology will lead the researcher to the development of methods of data collection and analysis that are consistent within the research methodology and throughout the study.

There are a number of ways to collect data from qualitative study participants. The types of data collected and used vary greatly from study to study. However, in the types of data collected, there is an emphasis on the understanding of human experience. It is essential when collecting data using open-ended interviews, open-ended questions, and open-ended questionnaires to not lead the participant, and for researcher bias to not interfere with the data collected.

Types of Data – Following is a list of a variety of data types:

Field work.                               Participant observation.

Direct observation.                Naturalistic observation.

Purposeful sampling.                Interviewing.

Open-ended questions.                Guiding questions.

Open-ended questionnaire.                Focus groups.

Journaling.                                              Literature, poetry, and biography.

Personal documents.                Historical documents.

Photos, video, and film.
