Qualitative Research Methods

Methods and Statistics in Social Sciences,

In this course you will be introduced to the basic ideas behind the qualitative research in social science. You will learn about data collection, description, analysis and interpretation in qualitative research. Qualitative research often involves an iterative process. We will focus on the ingredients required for this process: data collection and analysis. You won't learn how to use qualitative methods by just watching video's, so we put much stress on collecting data through observation and interviewing and on analysing and interpreting the collected data in other assignments. Obviously, the most important concepts in qualitative research will be discussed, just as we will discuss quality criteria, good practices, ethics, writing some methods of analysis, and mixing methods. We hope to take away some prejudice, and enthuse many students for qualitative research.

What people are saying

qualitative research methods

A good overview of qualitative research methods from a sociological and anthropological perspective.

Of course, the subject is too wide to fit in a month-long mooc but I felt it was a good primer and touched about key aspects of Qualitative Research Methods, with good references and sign-posting to further in-depth study on the specific topics.

I enjoyed a lot doing field work and analyzing results from all over the world Good Course and provide me basic understanding of Qualitative Research Methods.I will be great if course PDF Transcript will be provided as in Quantitative course instead of Presentation Slides.

Great course with a solid introduction to qualitative research methods.

I was impressed by Dr Moerman's passion to qualitative research methods (though sometimes his vivid gesticulation and jumping distracted me from the material).

unique course on qualitative research methods, Very vague, abstract ideas in the lectures.

I recommend it for those at undergraduate/early stages of post-graduate studies who want to get a leg up in qualitative research methods.

really enjoyed the writing assignments as a creative project but I don't feel I was able to fully grasp the concepts despite getting good marks.

I really enjoyed the content and learned so very much.

Would help clarify notions I really enjoyed the course, I learned a lot and I am planning to do more focused reading on qualitative methods especially analysis.

I really enjoyed this course.

I also really enjoyed the practical aspect of some of the assignments - although it does mean you can't leave them to the night before the deadline!

so much

Definitely made me realize that there is so much to learn and experience in the world of rigorous qualitative research that one cannot simply "pick up" when working in research-related roles in the industry.

Thank you so much Dr. Gerben Moerman This course is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge on Qualitative Research.

The focus on assignments more than exams is really useful, since so much of qualitative research involves talking, listening, and writing.

The lecture videos are interesting, engaging, and informative, and the assignments are so much fun to complete!

The lecturer does a great job at communicating complex concepts in an effective and attractive way (so much energy!).

Very well organised course useful material well educated ProfessorVery interesting approach for assigments Despite it is so much theoretical it provides the suitable knowledge to undestood the not only the learning process but the aspects of society.
