Milestone 7

Technique

Abstract

This milestone takes the researcher to some of the more practical aspects of conducting research. Up to this milestone, you have been becoming increasingly practical in engaging issues in the design of your research. Some call it data collection instrument design, or strategy, or data-generating techniques. In all probability, you will use a number of techniques: interviews and transcripts of interviews plus field notes; focus group plus professional journal; observation plus field notes; the wording or phrasing of documents plus interviews; the items in diaries or journals plus surveys; your observation notes plus photographs plus video tapes; and so on.
