Qualitative Research Methods
Whether the goals of research are applied or more abstract, team research has been an important aspect of ethnography. In Doing Team Ethnography, the latest volume in the Qualitative Research Methods series, authors Ken Erickson and Donald Stull examine the myriad of challenges and opportunities in doing team ethnography. From setting goals and putting together a team, to observing, sharing, and collaborating on a finished product, Doing Team Ethnography provides clear and practical advice to researchers at any level or in any discipline.
The book's subject is too specialist for the cohort we are teaching, but the text is so informative and well presented I wanted to ensure the students had the opportunity to know of its existence for their future activities.
We are working in joint project with several MA and PhD students. The engagement has been a dual one with students doing both individual and joint projects. Students have found the text useful for unpacking the joint encounter. At least one is using it as a reference in their MA thesis.
