HOD-883PG Advanced Research Methodologies: Phenomenography and Variation

2 or 4 semester credits
This includes advanced studies and applied research projects, designed to develop skills in specific research methodologies and approaches. All the advanced research modules numbered 883XX are designed to enable students to learn a particular research method in depth. Phenomenographic inquiry seeks to discover the variation in the qualitatively different ways that people make meaning and discern aspects of a phenomenon. This variation is captured, analyzed, and organized into graphical representations that support learning and evidence-based action in organizations, health care, education, social change, technology, and other initiatives. This module integrates variation theory and critical reading of phenomenographic research literature with hands-on learning in epistemology, reflexive methodologies, collaborative analysis, graphical design, and project evaluation.
