This discussion will help you understand the different ways that research can be presented based on varied approaches (quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method). The text also covers extensive writing tips in regard to scholarly writing which can be useful to help you reflect and develop your own scholarly writing in coursework which requires research. A second aim of the discussion is to ouch on the integral aspect of preparation for performing research; ensuring you have considered the ethical concerns and protections for your research participants or subjects. In your initial post, address the following:
- Differentiate between the qualitative constructivist/interpretive format and the qualitative transformative format for writing research proposals.
- Discuss the importance of the purpose statement and the research question in the mixed-methods research proposal.
- The author of the course text provides some helpful tips in scholarly writing. What tips did you find most useful to further develop your own scholarly writing in course work which requires research papers or a project?
- Under what circumstances would you attempt to persuade a potential study participant to consent to an interview or completing a survey? How ethical or unethical do you think this would be, and why? For example, data from participants is important to a research study. What is appropriate in influencing a participant’s desire to share information with you as a researcher, and how do ensure your approach is ethical?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
