What is participant observation? How is it actually done? How is it combined in mixed-methods research to produce valid findings? How can we ensure its quality? Is there an advantage to doing limited participant observation with other methods in a short-term study?
Who will benefit?
The course is introductory but will rapidly take participants to the level of being able to put their knowledge and skills to practice. Some prior familiarity with qualitative methods would be beneficial but not essential.
