Presentation of Case Study Methodology & Design from a Scholar-Practitioner Perspective

Qualitative case study methodology provides the opportunity to conduct an intensive exploration or description and analysis of a situation or social unit, such as an individual, group, institution, or community (Yin, 2009). The benefit of this qualitative approach for the scholar-practitioner is the ability to study contemporary phenomenon in current, applicable real-life context to the researcher (Noor, 2008). A case study method may be used when the type of research question asks a “why” or “how” question.

Positive Approaches to Doctoral Student Success

The literature on doctoral student persistence continues to grow, yet little is known about the individual student factors that contribute to doctoral student success in distance learning programs. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between the constructs of “grit” and spiritual orientation as student-level strengths.

These needs were also evident in the educational space.
