How would you examine your research question from a qualitative perspective? Take the broad research question that you developed in Module 1 and answer the following:
Identify and describe three types of qualitative research methods.
What qualitative research method have you decided to use and why?
Describe your sampling design. (Hint: qualitative data usually uses purposive sampling methods).
Describe the kind of relationship you intend to have with the informants. Will you be hidden, neutral, collaborative, or action-driven?
If you will develop or adopt qualitative research instruments (e.g. open-ended interview questions, open-ended surveys, informed consent agreements), describe them and the process of development/adoption, revisions, etc. These instruments may go as appendixes of your proposal.
Describe your intended qualitative data analysis procedures such as narratives, coding and interpretation.
