Develop a research question (similar to the ones you have explored throughout this subject) that supports the qualitative exploration of a topic of your choice
This assessment is prescribed to advance literature searching, critical analysis, research question development, research planning skills, and reflexivity as a researcher.
This assessment involves developing a research question, preparing interview and probe questions, identifying four people that you can interview on this topic (for example, your family or friends, colleagues), and reflecting on your motivation and justification of your research proposal.
It assesses the key understanding necessary for conceptualising and developing a qualitative research proposal, which will prepare you for the use of qualitative methods in research and evaluation as a public health practitioner.
There are two steps to completing this assignment.
Develop a research question (similar to the ones you have explored throughout this subject) that supports the qualitative exploration of a topic of your choice. Review the materials from Module 1 to familiarise yourself with the scope and purpose of qualitative research.
Write a research proposal for your qualitative project.
You must include:
- A brief literature review to summarise the existing knowledge in this space, and justify your proposed project.
- Your research question and the knowledge gap that it will address.
- A summary of the key elements of the methodology that you think would be the most appropriate methodology to use to explore your research question (ie grounded theory, phenomenology etc), and why it is appropriate for exploring your research question.
- Your methods, including how you will select your participants (in this case, four people whom you already know) and your interview process.
- Your interview questions.
- A personal reflection on your motivation for exploring this research question, any ethical or cultural considerations for your project, and anything that could create a risk of bias in your data (ie interviewing friends).
