n order for you to select the qualitative research approach that best fits your research question, you will need to develop a deeper familiarity with the approaches available to you. This week’s Assignment is the second of a two-part activity designed to broaden and deepen your base of knowledge of qualitative research approaches.
In Week 2, you began completing a Qualitative Research Approaches Matrix Template with four qualitative research approaches. For this week’s Assignment, you will add to that matrix by including four more research approaches.
To prepare for this Assignment:

Review this week’s readings, focusing on the differences among the following four qualitative research approaches:

Social constructionism and narrative inquiry
Systems theory
Ethnography/autoethnography
Interactive and participatory qualitative applications

Locate the Qualitative Research Approaches Matrix Template you completed from last week’s Assignment submission.

Basic Qualitative Inquiry

Philosophy, history constructionism, phenomenology

· How can the experience of [an event, circumstance, program, a context] be described or explored?
· What is the meaning of [a process, program, or event] to the target individual(s) of interest?

· What “practical” knowledge can be learned?

Use of the words “describe,” “explore,” “experience,” and “meaning” in title and research questions

Interviews

Choice is a function of the question

Content analysis is a good choice as it is generic and exploratory

Elo et al., 2014 Merriam, 2009
Saldana, 2016
Worthington, 2013

Qualitative Case Study

Grounded Theory and Realism

Emergence of theory, inductive, theoretical sampling, constant comparison, open coding, axial coding, saturation, memo writing

Phenomenology and Heuristic Inquiry

What is the meaning, structure, and essence of the lived experience of this phenomenon for this person or group of people?
What is my experience of this phenomenon and the essential experience of others who also experience this phenomenon intensely?

Submit in Week 3

Social Constructivism and Narrative Inquiry

Select individuals who have directly experienced the phenomenon of interest

Systems Theory

How and why does this system as a whole function as it does?
What are the system’s boundaries and interrelationships, and how do these affect perspectives about how and why the system functions as it does?

Ethnography and Autoethnography

Ellis, Adams & Bochner, 2011
Hoey, 2014
Rose, 1993

Interactive and Participatory Qualitative Applications

Action research, co-researcher, participant-researcher, learning organization, dialogue, appreciative inquiry

Highlight indicates example response.
