This is a key text for any student embarking on a qualitative research project, it provides worked examples and valuable models which can be used as guides for plans and proposals, answering key questions and providing a comprehensive guide to a studenta€™s project. It shows that when planning a qualitative research proposal, researchers should adopt an approach where they ask themselves the following four questions: What research paradigm informs my approach to my research area? What theoretical perspective do I choose within the paradigm? What methodology do I choose? What methods are most appropriate? Including examples of the write-up of two central types of research projects: studies on participantsa€™ a€˜perspectivesa€™ on phenomena and studies on how participants manage or a€˜cope witha€™ phenomena, the book outlines five research proposals to illustrate ways in which these two central a€˜typesa€™ can be varied and applied when engaging in five other types of studies, namely, policy studies, life history studies, retrospective interactionist longitudinal studies and interactionist historical studies, and a€˜problem-focuseda€™ studies.An Introduction to Interpretivist Research in Education Tom Oa#39;Donoghue.
