2019 Spring Graduate Courses

Please visit your course website frequently (once each week at least). I regularly update each syllabus: adding activities, reading list, and some websites. I also put some of the questions or discussion points that we have during the sessions. If you think there is something missing or something helpful, please email it to me.

Some websites to read/listen/watch:

Learning how to look and listen.
This website brings together resources from a conference supported by the Spencer Foundation at Arizona State University where an interdisciplinary group of older and younger scholars gathered to document and illustrate the basic patterns of visual and auditory attention that are employed by researchers who use video to study social interaction. The image below shows some of these scholars conducting individual analysis of a 2-minute video of classroom interaction showing the teaching of a key idea in the physics of matter—that matter occupies space—in a bilingual kindergarten-first grade classroom.

Marxist internet archive library.
An enormous library about Marxism.

Research journals on qualitative research.
The Qualitative Report Guide to Qualitative Research Journals is a unique resource for researchers, scholars, and students to explore the world of professional, scholarly, and academic journals publishing qualitative research. The number and variety of journals focusing primarily on qualitative approaches to research have steadily grown over the last forty years. From discipline- or profession-specific to trans-, cross-, and multidisciplinary missions, these journals represent a richly diverse approach to qualitative inquiry.

These links will take you to vibrant online communities, leading research centers, indispensable learning resources, and personal websites of outstanding qualitative research leaders.

A compendium of teaching and learning qualitative research resources.
Researchers and scholars around the world have produced a sizable body of literature focusing on learning and teaching qualitative research. Although there is no definitive consensus on what constitutes a singular set of “best practices” for mentoring and training qualitative researchers, this published corpus of work reflects a definitive effort on the part of the qualitative research community to make its preferences more transparent and to engage in a on-going conversation of what “quality in qualitative research didactics” means for teacher and student alike.
