i'm about to venture to the viva next week and am dreading the methodology questions, has anyone been asked why they picked a survey over a case study and why they have a specific philosophical stance?
how do you answer such questions (other than because it suits my study)?
I was asked why I chose a specific qualitative analysis technique. I was also asked why I chose my epistemolical stance.
I found writing a chart out on a piece of paper with columns saying "technique" "+" "-" "do differently" really helped with these answers. So what technique did you do? Advantages/disadvantages to using it and then what would I do differently (i.e. what other ways I could have done it, why didn't I).
