Mitos en la investigación cualitativa

  • John Wesley Taylor Asociación General de los Adventistas del Séptimo Día, EE.UU.
Palabras clave: mitos, investigación cualitativa

Resumen

Se examinan cuatro mitos que se encuentran a menudo dentro de la investigación cualitativa y que tienen el potencial de distorsionar los resultados del esfuerzo y de la efectividad de los investigadores. Estos mitos deben ser deconstruidos y reemplazados por sus realidades.
