Doing Qualitative Research

Synopsis
DD307 uses traditional and cutting-edge social psychological theories to explore some of the most exciting and pressing issues we face in our complex, fast changing world. Topics include emotions, conflict, relationships, the body, personality, prejudice and group processes.

This second DVD is focused on how to conduct a research project. It begins by thinking through the research topic and the process of coming up with an idea for a project. Students who have already conducted research projects in various contexts discuss the issues and challenges involved. The DVD moves on to give examples of individual interviews and a group discussion. It then turns from data collection to data analysis and illustrates in some detail three different approaches to analysing transcripts, based on discursive psychological, phenomenological and social psychoanalytical perspectives.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
