What role does trust play in qualitative research

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

What role does trust play in qualitative research? Trust between participants and researcher is supreme. First, trust is person specific (researcher will have to develop trust with each person individually). Second, trust is established developmentally and slowly over time. Third, trust can be destroyed with one improper action. What does gaining access to a given context entail? Gaining access includes making the initial contact, negotiating access, establishing entry and operational parameters, becoming known to the participants, and observing the interaction. What is meant by gatekeeper? Respondent validation? A gatekeeper is a person who has authority or credibility with the group or organization. Respondent validation is a sponsor who can vouch for you as well as validate and legitimize your presence. Do qualitative researchers know what they are looking for in advance or do they stumble onto their findings? Why is this? Sometimes the researcher will stumble onto something, because qualitative research can sometimes be unpredictable. Researchers 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
