Case Studies and Discourse Analysis in Qualitative Geoscience Education Research

Thursday, Friday 8:30am-11:30am


Samuel Nyarko, Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis
The goal of this workshop is to identify the types of research problems/questions that can be answered within qualitative education research frameworks. The primary focus will be on evaluating how decisions are made to identify a qualitative research design. We will specifically learn about the two major qualitative case study designs (single and multiple case), their differences, and the use of critical discourse analysis in these designs. The hope is that the workshop will be a time for us to share our work with one another and receive advice and feedback on our projects.
