This course provides an overview of qualitative research methods and their application in the field of Information Systems (IS). The course begins with an introduction to the basic principles and alternatives of conducting qualitative research. It then provides deeper insights into three types of qualitative research, i.e. positivist variance-theoretic, interpretive (and/
or grounded theory based), and process theoretic. For each of them, the underlying design principles will be discussed with illustrative examples. The students are required to summarize and discuss particular research papers and to reflect on how the design principles of conducting qualitative research were applied in the respective papers. For particular topics the students will be grouped into teams and will be required to prepare their group work and present it in class. Overall, the course is designed to be interactive. The students learn how to design their own qualitative research study. They are enabled to illustrate the application of the design principles learned in the course.
