After studying the introduction to this unit and completing the study activities, briefly compare the use of the research design employed in the study you selected to that of another qualitative design. In other words, what type of questions is each research design used to explore (for example, questions about the lived experience of a person experiencing a phenomenon, how to build a theory that is grounded in the data)? Summarize how the sampling, data collection, and data analysis procedures worked together to address the study’s research question or questions. The post should be written in your own words, not direct quotes from the articles. Incorporate material from the course text in a meaningful way.
