Strategies for framing a question, collecting data and determining samples will be part of the discussion. Methods of quantitative and qualitative research will be discussed and the relationship of purpose to method examined. Emphasis will be on the living, changing nature of qualitative research during the process of developing the Master’s Project Proposal. Section K: Keene NH Cluster 2008
