schema:description"This text offers a brief but comprehensive overview of qualitative research that balances the practicalities of conducting research with the theory and debates that keep qualitative inquiry vibrant. As faculty and students increasingly turn to qualitative inquiry, they need a text that will not only provide them with an understanding of qualitative research methods, but also open them to the diverse possibilities within this inquiry approach. This text covers the range of possibilities and includes numerous exercises that offer beginning students the opportunity to practice and refine the skills needed for qualitative research. The wealth of examples in the text is exceptional, as is the accessible and engaging writing style."@en
schema:description""Dr. Glesne encourages qualitative researchers to approach their data in fresh, dynamic ways, including poetic transcription and dramatic representation. These creative methods challenged me to examine my data using new perspectives, and allowed me to represent the voices of my participants more authentically."--Bethany Rice (University of Vermont graduate student) --Book Jacket."@en
