Omschrijving In the course, students learn to execute and report on a complete qualitative research project. To this goal, students go through the qualitative research cycle, comprising the design cycle, the ethnographic cycle and the analytic cycle. Students start with formulating an SDG-related research question, and after critically engaging with the literature, they design their research instrument, collect and analyse data, and finally write and present a research report. When collecting data, interviews will be used, but also focus group discussion and observation is taken into account (triangulation). The students also work on weekly assignments, group discussions and literature presentations.
