This course builds on COMM8001 Introduction to Qualitative Research Design and Methods and provides an advanced understanding of qualitative research approaches, methods and techniques together with hands-on experience in conducting qualitative studies. The course focuses on advanced issues critical for qualitative inquiry and examines a range of philosophical foundations for qualitative inquiry, the design and conduct of qualitative studies (of different types), selection and justification of research methods and techniques of data collection and analysis. Particular attention is given to the ethics of research, the role of researcher and relationships within context researched, and the quality criteria for qualitative research.
The course adopts a workshop style and active students’ engagement in workshops, debates and class activities. It will also include the review of exemplary papers adopting a variety of advanced qualitative research methods from organization studies, management, accounting, information systems, and other business disciplines.
