Not enough student resources. Powerpoint slides are very minimal.
Informative and accessible
This is a comprehensive introduction to qualitative research. There is a clear rationale for the given approaches to research with well constructed exercises designed to consolidate learning. The subjects are covered at sufficient depth for master's level research.
I use this within my research team to introduce researchers more familiar with quantitative methods to qualitiative research when required. As well as recommending it to PhD students.
Good overall summary of main features of qualitative research. Accessible and helpful
This textbook has had a really useful makeover from its previous edition and continues to offer aspects of theory in a clear and succinct way. Useful for a range of students but particularly undergraduate and masters level.
