Module 1 – Background
introduction to case study design and methodology
The following readings are required for Module 1. Optional readings can be found at the end of this section and while not required, may help you understand the material better and be useful to you if you choose to conduct a case study research method for your doctoral study. All readings can be accessed in the Trident Online library, unless linked to another source.
The Case Study as a Research Method
This module begins with an overview of the case study method, how this method differs from other types of research, the types of topics that are well suited for case studies, and compares the main types of case studies used for research.
Begin your reading with Chapter One from Case Study Research: Design and Methods. You can find this book in the Trident Library, or purchase your own copy very inexpensively at a number of online book purveyors.

Case Study Design
We continue with an exploration of case study design. This section begins with a consideration of research questions and units of analysis, followed by the role of implicit or explicit theory in driving the research, considerations of quality (validity and reliability), and ending with the selection of single versus multiple case study designs and mixed methods.

Case Study Protocol and Preparing to Collect Data
In Module 2, we will examine the steps of collecting and analyzing case study data, but there is much to be done (and learned) before data collection. Thus, in this final section of module one, we look at how to prepare for a case study, ethical considerations and procedures for protecting human subjects, and developing a protocol.
