Research in Practice
Qualitative research in the past 30 years has increasingly been viewed as making an important contribution to research and evaluation. For this discussion, you are asked to read two Research in Practice articles in the text. Evaluate and synthesize the contribution qualitative researched played with regard to Research in Practice (5.1, pp. 110) and Research in Practice (12.2, p 338). Your work should clearly identify the importance of using qualitative methods and explain in what ways these methods helped the studies. Respond to two of your classmates’ postings.
