Course Catalog Description:
This course introduces students to knowledge and skills appropriate for the conduct of rigorous case study research in educational, organizational, and other social settings. Underlying purposes and assumptions of case study methods will be examined as well as a variety of methodological approaches. The course focuses on the use of qualitative and mixed-methods approaches as these are the predominant strategies employed in contemporary case study research. Accordingly, it emphasizes links between research purposes, the conceptualization of case study projects, and the development of researchable questions. It also takes up a variety of ethical and political issues related to working with participants during the research process, as well as contemporary trustworthiness criteria for case study reports. The bulk of the course is given to training in observation, generating field notes, interviewing, collecting material cultural artifacts, using surveys, and analyzing, interpreting, and writing up case study data. The first segment of the course focuses on a critical discussion of research paradigms and epistemological assumptions of a variety of case study approaches. Students choose and critique a published case study from their field of interest. The second part of the course is devoted to a very small scale case study project which students design and carry out themselves. This project is supported by relevant readings and in-class activities (including peer review) related to the actual conduct of case study research.

Course Catalog Description:
Qualitative case study research methods and their applications to educational policy and practice. Emphasis on designing studies that employ open-ended interviewing as primary data collection technique.
Class Description:
This course, taught by Gerald W. Fry, will introduce students to case study research in an international, intercultural context. Examples from both domestic and international contexts will be used. This research approach is highly flexible in the units of analysis that can be considered and the wide range of specific quantitative and qualitative research methods that can be applied in diverse interdisciplinary contexts. We will examine the different genres of case study research (e.g., historical, ethnographic, descriptive, exploratory, evaluative) and the research methods that are appropriate to those genres. We will examine how case study research has been used in the social and behavioral sciences, with the focus on the fields of education and policy issues. Students will read and critique case studies, and they will work individually or in teams to conduct and present to the class a small scale example of case study research. The goals of the course are to: 1. familiarize students with case study research genres, units of analysis, and methods. 2. promote students' skills in reading and critiquing case study research. 3. introduce students to the literature on case study research, and, 4. provide students the opportunity to practice conducting case study research. There is an emphasis on the creative mix of qualitative and quantitative research methods to enhance the rigor of case studies research. Another major element of the course is a critical examination of cases of unethical research. The course texts will be Robert Yin's recent book on case study research and an actual recent case study of a Mumbai slum, the national book award winning Behind the Beauiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Under City by Kaherine Boo. There are also additional readings that are part of the course Moodle site.
