Introduction to Qualitative Field Research Methods
This module builds on DHP D235M and expects that students will come to the course with a developed research question that they want to explore using qualitative methods in various field settings. The course is highly practical with short assignment due for nearly every class. Primary Course Objectives: students develop good observational, interview, note-taking and recording skills; students know how to validate/verify information; students can classify (code) and analyze qualitative data; students develop concrete calls to action — policies, products, and programs; students learn to write a policy brief based on their final projects.
