This course will examine the organization, design, and execution of multi-method, qualitative research with a special emphasis on third sector contexts. Specific tools for research, such as observation, interview, case study design, and document analysis, will be examined through course readings, discussion, and the conduct of student projects. Course readings and assignments will also encourage the students to deconstruct published research to recognize viewpoint and researcher bias, to find strengths and weaknesses in evidence and analysis, and to evaluate strategies for writing and presenting research.
