Blending and Adapting the Approaches
By this point, you should have a solid foundational understanding of the five approaches to qualitative research. In this Discussion, you will take your knowledge a step further by discussing how the approaches might be blended or adapted to suit particular research questions or topics.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review the required reading and media segment for this week.
Consider situations in which blending or adapting two or more research approaches might be useful. What kinds of research questions would benefit from such a blending or adapting?
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 3, 2-3 paragraphs in which you generalize how and when research approaches could be blended or adapted for a research study.
When appropriate, be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the reading(s) and/or video program(s) and use APA format.
