This paper presents a teaching framework for a graduate course on Qualitative Research Methods course. The organizing concept of the teaching framework is that teaching and learning qualitative research are similar in essence to conducting qualitative research. The teaching framework is based on ten principles of teaching and learning qualitative research methods that result from the application of ten principles of conducting qualitative research. In other words, teaching and learning a course that deals with qualitative research implements the principles of such research. The teaching framework was constructed during a reflective research that lasted four years. During the course of the study, the researchers-lecturers collected and analyzed various course assignments performed by 62 students, online student discussions, observations made during class, interviews, and occasional conversations with students. The study contributes to research on the pedagogy of research methods in general and of qualitative research methods in particular.
