Week 8 Discussion: Theory and Method

Theory and MethodThis week you examined appropriate resources for your program on quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods to think about how theory might align with your topic and a potential method for exploring it. For this discussion, choose one of the following options for your post:·         Discuss your observations of the differences in how theory connects to qualitative and quantitative research.·         Post an article on your topic that used a quantitative approach and one that used a qualitative approach. Discuss how they differed. In your view, was one more effective than the other?·         Share your questions or concerns you have about aligning theory to your work. What support is available to you?·         As we wrap up this week, share resources you found in the Quantitative Skills Center that may be helpful to your project and explain why.
