Week 5: Data Collection: Documents, Videos, Websites Using the public policy conceptual framework, the research team framed their self-study as an investigation of “program positionality” using the sensitizing concepts of: • Availability—of what? To whom? • Accessibility—can the potential recipient find us or get to us?, and • Acceptability—is the program aligned with community financial resources? Each program document, video, webpage, and protocol was examined. The research team members developed a form to document and organize the data to be extracted from the various sources. The document contained places for: • Recordkeeping (date, time, researcher id); • Descriptive information about the source (creation date, purpose, ownership, content); • Answers to each of the three key concepts; and • Reflexive notes—a place for the researcher to describe their reactions and feelings to what was being learned. As noted in this continuing scenario, the research team needs to spend quite a bit of time identifying, collecting, organizing, reviewing, and analyzing data that is relevant to the phenomenon of study (Ravitch & Carl, 2016). In this case, because of the multiple sources of data, organizing the data is critical to the data collection process. For this week, you will begin coding your first Scholars of Change Video. You also will explore gathering data from websites and other documents as they relate to your positive social change experience. Learning Objectives Students will: • Analyze coding related to video data collection • Analyze social change based on coding related to documents and websites • Design qualitative research for social change (assessed in Week 10) Discussion 1: Coding Scholar of Change Video #1 In Weeks 1–4, you observed and created field notes for each of the Walden Scholars of Change videos. Now that you have completed your observations, next you will select one of the Scholars of Change videos to begin the coding process of not only your field notes but also the transcript of the video you downloaded. To prepare for this Discussion: • Review the chapters in the Saldaña text found in this week’s Learning Resources. • Review the Introduction to Coding and From Content to Coding media programs in the Learning Resources. • Refer back to your observational field notes from the Scholars of Change Videos from Weeks 1–4. • Choose one of the four Scholars of Change videos and refer to your field notes from your observation. • Access the transcript you downloaded for the media program of the Scholars of Change video you selected for this Discussion. • Begin to code the transcript and the observational field notes of the Scholar of Change Video you chose. (Note: You will only need one or two codes for this Discussion, although more are acceptable.) By Wednesday Post a brief description of the video you chose. Next, include an example of one or two codes and provide quotes from your notes or transcript to support your example. Finally, explain your reasoning for this coding. Be sure to support your main post and response post with reference to the week’s Learning Resources and other scholarly evidence in APA style.
