Konstanz Methods Excellence Workshops: Comparative Case Study Design

March 14 - March 18

Course Description

This five-day, in-person main course provides you with the skills needed to design your qualitative comparative case study research, based on your own and/or other applied research projects. The course covers the topics of causal complexity, concept formation, casing and case selection, logics and strategies of comparison, accounting for context and time, choosing data collection and analysis strategies, as well as conceptual and research-practical issues when drawing inferences in case-oriented research.  Note: While the organizers intend to hold the in-person courses on site, they stand ready to switch to on-line provision of these courses if the corona rules do not allow for presence teaching.
