Home assignment prior to the course:

1) Make a self-presentation (not more than 1 page). This presentation should comprise information about: your area of investigation, one or two purpose statements describing the broader aims of your research, main research questions, research design (primarily qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods?), and why you have chosen the design (look in Cresswell & Cresswell chapter 1-5). This presentation should be e-mailed to the course leaders by October 1st.  You will be organized in collaborative groups for the course and we will use the self-presentations to form groups. Please bring a copy of your self-presentation to the course

2) Try to identify the purpose statement(s) and research design in the 4 following articles. These will be discussed in the groups. Please bring the papers to the course.
