What this webinar is about
Deductive approaches to qualitative research have been overlooked by many researchers. This is partly because it has been conceived of as a less conventional research approach and as a result it has traditionally had relatively few guidelines and examples. This has changed and there is much more interest in using this method for academic research especially at the masters and doctoral levels.
This Webinar/workshop explains when qualitative testing of research propositions is appropriate, presents a research procedure to follow, explores the contribution that can be made in following this approach, as well as its limitations.
This Webinar is relevant to academics from most Commerce and Social Science Faculties, and it will also have value to some other Departments and Schools.
Positioning deductive approaches to qualitative research
- Conventional approaches to quantitative and qualitative research
- When qualitative testing of research propositions is appropriate:
- maturity of the research concept
- nature of the phenomenon
- investigating processes
- type of data
The research process
- A seven-step process incorporating deductive thematic analysis and pattern matching
- Conceptual frameworks and research propositions
- The code book
- Coding memoranda
- The interview question matrix
- Descriptive elements
- Deductive thematic analysis
- Pattern matching
- Testing research propositions
- Theory building
- Contextualising versus generalising findings
This webinar delivers practical useful information which can be put to immediate use. It is relevant to academics from most Faculties, Departments and Schools.
