9780133859393: Becoming Qualitative Researchers: An Introduction

Beginning researchers get an overview of qualitative research through a concise look at the practice of conducting research and the theory and debates that keep qualitative inquiry vibrant.

 

Ideal for introducing the novice researcher to the theory and practice of qualitative research, this text opens students to the diverse possibilities within this inquiry approach, while helping them understand how to design and implement specific research methods. The author’s accessible writing style, the wealth of examples, and the numerous exercises provide opportunities for practicing and refining the skills of becoming a qualitative researcher. The new edition focuses on the development of research proposals (Ch. 2); the history and concerns of institutional review boards (IRBs) and issues qualitative researchers sometimes confront when submitting proposals (Ch. 6); greater information and examples on coding and thematic analysis, while also introducing other approaches to data analysis (Ch. 7); and arts based research through a chapter that encourages consideration of creative ways to approach and represent inquiry (Ch. 9). Chapter 10 looks at sharing research results through participation at conferences and in publications.

Review:

“I think it’s a great text: accessible, but sophisticated treatment of issues … the style is excellent and the writing extraordinarily clear. The mix of examples from Glesne’s own research (which shows how she has moved from approach to approach in qualitative work) and her students’ research are very informative.”

-- Lynne Hamer, University of Toledo

 

“[T]he book is engaging, accessible, and comprehensive.... I particularly appreciate Glesne's attention to terminology … The tools, examples, matrices, diagrams, and glossary add a valuable dimension to teaching qualitative research.”

— Anita Wadhwa, Harvard Graduate School of Education

 

“[Becoming Qualitative Researchers] expertly conveys the complex nature of doing qualitative research, complete with the joys and challenges, without driving students away. … They leave intrigued and encouraged, despite understanding how complex and time consuming it is…. I get students from several other disciplines including social work, public health, nursing, … they appreciate the fact that there are other examples of research in the text that come from outside the field of education.”

— Michelle Lorraine Jay, University of South Carolina
