Research design does refer to the plan on how one wants to answer a research question. One the other hand, research methodology refers to the strategy used to work out the project provided. Research design and methodology are closely related. However, the two have a contrasting difference. A research design aids one in answering the research question provided with ease. For this particular research study, there was the implementation of a mixed type of research method?the first part of this study comprised of a sequence of structured questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. Semi-structured interviews did allow new ideas to be brought about during the interview conducted and had a framework of themes to be explored. This particular research uses both quantitative and qualitative methods and also incorporates primary and secondary sources. Both the qualitative and quantitative data and data analysis got sewn together; thus, they complement each other (De Block and Vis 2019). The area of study that got carried gets exclusively covered under this chapter.
Qualitative Research
Qualitative research involves an interpretative and naturalistic approach to the subject concerned. Being a qualitative researcher, one gets to study the subject of the research while in their natural setting. All that gets done while also attempting to make sense of the theme and interpreting the thesis in a way that the people give it a meaning. The method of research involves observation to gather non-numerical data. It is more of a case study, an introspection, or a life story. Qualitative research is an exhaustive process that has rigorous inquiries into the social world aspects (Tricco et al. 2016). Qualitative research does provide formal statements and frameworks that are conceptual while offering a whole new different angle into how we understand the world in terms of the subject. Qualitative research is a useful tool for those who work around learning while adjusting to the pressures of the social world.
