For those new to qualitative research, this book provides a straight-forward approach to conducting the six types of qualitative research. Often, faculty who are trained in quanitative research begin exploring how they teach and how their students learn (SoTL) but don't have the qualitative research background to be successful. This book is designed for this type of adult learner.
It´s a very complete and basic book on Qualitative Research. Very helpful for those starting in this area or as a quick and simple backup.
It´s not a big methodology volume but it works.
