Week 3: Monday, February 11 to Friday, February 15, 2019 — Methods in CBR

Don’t you love pink!

It is the third week, can you believe it? If you made it this far, you can do the whole course, for sure! 

By the end of this week, you will:

  • Develop an understanding that research is a series of mindful and collaborative decisions.
  • Recognize and apply the main factors to consider when choosing a method (including “power” differentials which will be discussed later in the course)
  • Become familiar with the key aspects of at least one method (this will include a choice of sampling method)
  • NOTE: In this course, we give preference to qualitative methods and participatory approaches.
