To prepare for this Discussion, review the resources from Morse (2015) and Heale and Twycross (2015) before considering the difference in quality criteria for quantitative (reliability and validity) and qualitative (dependability, credibility, transferability, and trustworthiness) methodologies. Further, consider how these concepts can be applied within your development as a research professional and a global change agent. Please see attached articles.
Post an application of research quality criteria within the context of your work as a doctoral researcher and global change agent. Your application should include the following Minimum of 500 words:
- As an independent scholar, what does the concept of “research quality” mean to you? Explain, and provide supportive examples.
- In your opinion, what are the most critical components for evaluating the quality of a quantitative or qualitative research study? Explain, and provide supportive examples.
- As a global change agent, how will you ensure research quality in your doctoral research study to promote positive social change?
Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and at least one additional scholarly source.
