In order for you to select the qualitative research approach that best fits your research question, you will need
to develop a deeper familiarity with the approaches available to you. This week’s Assignment is the first of a
two-part activity designed to broaden and deepen your base of knowledge of qualitative research approaches.
While the activity does not encompass all possible approaches, it does allow you to explore the eight most
common approaches you are likely to encounter and may wish to consider for yourself.
