Happy New Year All, I am indeed a beginner researcher who is doing a study on the impact of service-learning in a post-conflict society and having a tough time with my methodology. I have decided to do a qualitative case study along with an interpretive phenomenology and truly don’t know where to start.
Romelle, happy new year to you too. A good starting point is to work out your research questions – in case studies ‘How?’ and ‘Why?’ questions are often best. The methodology itself should facilitate in-depth investigation, look at multiple perspectives about the issue in question, and include a range of methods.
For reading, I would recommend: Stake, R.E. (2005) Qualitative case studies, in: Denzin, N.K. & Lincoln, Y.S. (eds) The Sage Handbook of Qualitative Research, 3rd ed. London: Sage.
Thanks for your interest in this. I am trying to find out what effect the service-learning program implemented in a post conflict society to combat trauma and rebuild communities had on the participants. Hope this clarifies a little. And yes, I am still working on this issue as I think its very important not only for this society but other PC societies.
