An explanation of the approach that you will use to address your research question(s) is part of the draft Dissertation Prospectus that you will submit . This week’s Learning Resources provide guidance in identifying the research method (qualitative, quantitative or mixed method) and the research design that best align with your research question(s), and thus enable you to logically and effectively address the research problem. It is often noted that the research design is the “blueprint” applied in conducting a study. As you continue to develop the draft of your Prospectus and prepare for this Discussion, keep in mind the strengths and limitations of each of the different research designs and methods.
Post 3-4 pages of your problem statement and your research question(s). Then describe at least one potential research design and one potential research method that you could use. Explain why each would be the most appropriate, given your problem statement and research questions. Be specific and support your response.
