Abstract

The advancements in qualitative research methods are largely incorporated in graduate level qualitative research courses in the United States. However, such developments in the field do not seem to be included in the qualitative research curriculum in developing countries such as India. There exists a disconnect between the ways in which qualitative research is conducted and taught at institutions of higher education in the United States and that in India. This paper emphasizes the need for further dissemination of both qualitative methods scholarship and pedagogy and examines what aspects of this tradition have/have not been included in the curriculum of major academic institutions in India and how can connections be drawn between qualitative research, practice, and teaching done in the US to that pursued in India.

The advancements in qualitative research methods are largely incorporated in graduate level qualitative research courses in the United States. However, such developments in the field do not seem to be included in the qualitative research curriculum in developing countries such as India. There exists a disconnect between the ways in which qualitative research is conducted and taught at institutions of higher education in the United States and that in India. This paper emphasizes the need for further dissemination of both qualitative methods scholarship and pedagogy and examines what aspects of this tradition have/have not been included in the curriculum of major academic institutions in India and how can connections be drawn between qualitative research, practice, and teaching done in the US to that pursued in India.
