5 Qualitative Approaches described by Creswell set in a Quiz Show Game template

5 Qualitative Approaches described by Creswell set in a Quiz Show Game template | Higher Education Topics & Resources | Scoop.it

Check.It.Out! Look at what I put together to distinguish the five qualitative approaches to research that Creswell (2013) described in his book. I had NO IDEA PowerPoint presentations could be this interactive! It's all about hyper linkingbetween the slides and I'm so impressed with the result. Almost 40 pgs summarized in one presentation that's fun to navigate thru. You can download the presentation and edit it to your heart's delight so you can use the template for other topics/subjects if you want. 

Creswell, J. W. (2013). Qualitative inquiry and research design: Choosing among five approaches (3rd ed.). Los Angeles, CA: Sage.

Olgy Gary's insight:

I'd love to take credit for this but the content is all Creswell's and the platform is all due to PowerPoint's hyperlinking features. :-)

'Black Panther,' History and the Future [Inside Higher Ed] | Higher Education Topics & Resources | Scoop.it

One of the best scholarly responses to the film has come from a philosopher arguing that as groundbreaking a film as Black Panther is, its weakness is its failure to imagine something better. "Can something other than the choice between incarceration or death be imagined in Wakanda?

If humanists do one thing well, it is focus on the question “who are we?” But the more pressing question may be “what do we want?” The relationship between these two questions is more tenuous than humanists want to believe.
