  • Quantitative research focuses on the left brain - objective, comfortable with logic, numbers, and unchanging static data and detailed, convergent reasoning rather than divergent reasoning. Qualitative research deals with the right brain - the hemisphere accountable for processing data as words, emotions, feelings, emotions, colour, and music.

    • 1. QUALITATIVE & QUANTITATIVERESEARCHEditor: Stephen Murray
    • 2. OVERALL FRAMEWORK
    • 3. KEEP IN MIND THAT …• Qualitative researchgenerally deals in words,images and the subjective• Quantitative researchgenerally deals innumbers, logic and theobjective
    • 4. QUALITATIVE RESEARCH• Research used in range of activitiesfrom exploratory designs to meansof completing explanations• Qualitative research assumes thatpeople have meaningfulactions or experiencesthat can be interpretedAgendaDefinition When touse?TypesFOCUS GROUPSIN DEPTHINTERVIEWPROJECTIVE TECH.Pros&Cons

    • 6. QUALITATIVE RESEARCH• Identification of a given question; opportunityor information requirements• Interest in obtaining insights formotivational /social (group) or emotional andattitudinal (individual) factors• In IR: primary data of events or personalitiessupporting explanations and argument• (Cf. In marketing: for new product launch, new servicedevelopment or repositioning current product
    • 7.

    • 10. QUALITATIVE RESEARCH DESIGNQualitative Research:  • Examples• Case studies on effect of vocational training in Papua • Ethnographic studies on indigenous populations in Oaxaca, Mexico   Qualitative Research Types:• Case studies • Developmental research • Historical research • Ethnograph studies • Case Studies:• Purpose: to do an in depth study• In brief: Background, current status and/or environmental factors that interact for each group (individual, institution or community) 
    • 11. • Characteristics of Case Studies:• It gives very detailed information about individuals / group / community• It may give a detailed explanation of a complete life cycle or part of it• Number of cases studied may be small but the number of variables studied are usually more in-depth (e.g. if compared to a survey)• Developmental Research:  • Conducted to research on the development of individuals / group / institution / community  • TWO TYPES: Cross-sectional and Longitudinal • Historical Research:• Used to gain information on an event, development and/or previous educational experience• Process may involve studying previous situation, checking on current situation, and to predict if the same situation will occur again • Conclusion on previous event is done based on collected facts and evidences to answer why and how the event and repercussions occurred• Useful to solve questions that involve sensitive issues • Important for systematically & objectively collecting and defining facts and evidences 
    • 12. • Procedure for Historical Research:• Define the problem • Specify source of evidence • Collect evidence / reference materials • Primary source / original (observation or witnesses of events or authentic objects – e.g. artifacts, speech text, records etc.) • Secondary source (materials or information collected from primary sources – e.g. paintings, films, news reports, documents • Critique of evidences – External critique: confirming if collected sources are genuine and reliable (authenticity of paintings, signatures, chemical analysis etc.) – Internal critique: conducted after authenticity of source of information is confirmed – involves evaluation of collected evidences– is it important? Required?  • Able to explain the researched phenomenon? • Prepare the report • Ethnographic Research:• In-depth study of natural behaviours in a culture or social group • Purpose – to understand relationships between behaviour and culture – Example: In education – to understand schooling process (e.g., immigrant children) Involves widespread observations (participant & nonparticipant) • Here often starts research without hypothesis – hypothesis is developed in the process of observations, and the researcher explores and test his hypothesis 
    • 13. QUALITATIVE RESEARCHIN-DEPTH INTERVIEWCharacteristics:• A well trained interviewer+interviewee• Interviewee is exposed to set of probing questions• Usually face to face• Interviewer encourages the interviewee to talk moreGoal:• To collect as much as memory, attitudinal and behavioral data from the subjectAgendaDefinition When touse?TypesFOCUS GROUPSIN DEPTHINTERVIEWPROJECTIVE TECH.Pros&Cons
    • 14. QUALITATIVE RESEARCH IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWApplications:-Interviews with professionals-Interviews with witnesses-When detailed probing is needed-Discussion of sensitive, confidential issues-When strong, social norms exist-Interviews with competitors
    • 15. QUALITATIVE RESEARCHIN-DEPTH INTERVIEWADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGESConcentrated issue -maximum probingFree exchange ofinformationEasier to arrangeBest for intimate,sensitive issuesFlexibilityExpensiveTime consumingExhausting forInterviewerInterviewer errorsRespondent bias orreliability
    • 16. QUALITATIVE RESEARCH PROJECTIVE TECHNIQUEDefinition:*• These are unstructured prompts or stimulus that encourage the respondent to project their underlying motivations, beliefs, attitudes, or feelings onto an ambiguous situation • They are all indirect techniques that attempt to disguise the purpose of the research AgendaDefinition When touse?TypesFOCUS GROUPSIN DEPTHINTERVIEWPROJECTIVE TECH.Pros&Cons*Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qualitative_marketing_research
