Qualitative methods are powerful tools to help educational researchers to develop theory, evaluate programs, and design educational interventions. Using qualitative methods, you can collect in depth information that you cannot obtain with quantitative methods. Qualitative methods are used to study human behavior and behavior changes, which are not well captured by quantitative techniques. The purpose of this workshop is to guide researchers in designing and implementing qualitative research projects. An overview of qualitative research design will be provided along with general recommendations for developing research questions, formulating a hypothesis, analyzing qualitative data, and validating the results.
