A team of students is expected to revise and improve (e-)learning materials on how to conduct qualitative research and organize a small study on cultural conflict that includes following tasks:
1) Materials improvement.
a. Revise and improve the existing guidelines (Word documents and Moodle elements), which should, at least, cover the following items:
i. Case Study Guideline improvement;
ii. Ethnography Guideline improvement;
iii. Interview Guideline improvement;
v. Video development (minimum 1 video for Case Study and 1 video for Ethnography sections);
v. Templates (re-)development: interview transcript, field memo, interview report and research report.
b. Students are required to go through the materials and make improvement, in terms of:
i. Quality of content: adding more reliable/reputable sources (and replacing the non-reliable ones);
ii. Structure: orthography, language style consistency, layout (table, figure);
iii. Citation: style consistency, fixing errors, making sure the references are all listed and available in Moodle.
2) Small study on culture conflict.
a. Students will conduct a small study by organizing interviews (with 8-10 interviewees) to investigate how cultural conflict influences team performance;
b. The interviewees will be the students from the previous IS project in WS19/20 and SS19. The interviews will be conducted virtual, and the analysis will be done with an analysis tool (Atlas.ti);
c. Students are expected to apply the “Interview Guidelines” to conduct this study and –by doing so – improve the content of the guidelines based on their own interview observations and experience.
d. The end result of this study will be a “Research Report” (10-15 pages long).
