Stretching exercises for qualitative researchers
Valerie J. Janesick
Paperback / softback
UK Publication Date

Developing the skills necessary to become an effective qualitative researcher involves more than simply learning rules, tools and formats. In her innovative and distinctive
book, Valerie J Janesick argues that tapping into ones artistic side is a fundamental prerequisite for realizing ones potential as a researcher.

The author provides a series of exercises, which can be used inside the classroom as well as outside, that are both artistically inspired and immensely practical. Thoroughly classroom-tested, these exercises help the researcher become a more active observer, interviewer and learner.

"This book is indeed quite non-traditional from other texts offering studies of qualitative research; it is easy to read and requires little contextual background to be understood. Likewise, it does educate readers quite effectively in the basic skills of qualitative research. This book can be quite useful to persons first learning how to engage in qualitative research, plus it offers a realistic set of exercises and examples for these learners to use."
