Conceptual Framework on Qualitative Research Design
Qualitative research attempts to broaden and/or deepen our understanding of how things came to be the way they are in our social world. If the research question involves exploring how people experience something, or what their views are, exploring a new area where issues are not yet understood or properly identified. A qualitative research design is probably the most flexible of the various experimental techniques, encompassing a variety of accepted methods and structures. Here, five of the major qualitative research designs namely ethnography, phenomenology, case study, grounded theory, and narrative research has introduced. Descriptionsof all five qualitative research designs are given separately. The design of qualitative research provides for the learner to understand the difference between phenomenology and grounded theory or between ethnography and case study and also narrative research and it gives the knowledge about itself.
