PSY 635 Week 3 Discussion Philosophical Differences Between Qualitative and Quantitative Paradigms and Approaches

Details: Philosophical Differences Between Qualitative and Quantitative Paradigms and Approaches
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 1 in the Frost e-book, Qualitative Research Methods in Psychology, and the required journal articles for this week. Also, review last week’s PSY635 Week Two Discussion Scenario (Links to an external site.). In that scenario, the three instructors realized there are limits to the insights they can gain through anonymous counting of discussion posts. The instructors would like to answer two additional research questions: (a) How do their students actually feel about the intervention? and (b) How do students view the influence of the intervention on their learning inside and outside of the classroom (if applicable)?
In your initial post, compare the characteristics of appropriate research designs and recommend a qualitative research design that would facilitate answering the instructors’ additional questions. Explain the philosophical paradigm underlying the recommended approach. Evaluate the required articles for this week and describe the assumptions the instructors might have to set aside as they enter into a qualitative research study. Be sure to identify any ethical issues that may apply to the research. Review the characteristics of the quantitative approach you described in the Week Two Discussion. Explain the ways in which the quantitative approach and paradigm differ from the qualitative approach and paradigm you have recommended here.
