CEU Summer University «Case Study Research Methods»

Central European University still accepts applications for the course on «Case Study Research Methods”: http://summer.ceu.hu/SSRM_casestudy-2014.

The course offers an integrated research design and methods training to help graduate students and junior researchers develop their projects and receive the training they need to execute them. It is available either online or in a blended format (mandatory online module + optional on-campus short course in Budapest).

While the online module offers introduction to and basic familiarity with case study research methods, during the on-campus module participants will receive further practice in the application of the techniques and individualized help with developing and refining their own research.

The course will address questions such as: what is a case? How to test a theory using a single or small number of cases, and, particularly, how to concretize concepts (or «variables») derived from one’s theory for use in qualitative case analysis. Significant focus will be placed on how to use case evidence to assess competing hypotheses (testing the explanatory power of the author’s favored model against that of alternative explanations), how to gather «case evidence» using qualitative field research methods, how to manage the data using various software programs and file management systems, and how to identify «useful» data gathered in the field and then effectively present it to readers using narrative analysis as well as qualitative or quantitative tests of congruence. Throughout, students will be expected to workshop their own plans for how to use case studies in their own research projects.

Application is encouraged from all over the world.

This summer course is financed through tuition fees (600 EUR for online instruction / 1,000 EUR for a combination of online and face-to-face instruction); scholarships or tuition waivers are not available.
