In this chapter, the authors indicated what a case study design is, and how a case study can be used in conducting research. This chapter opens with a brief introduction to case study research followed by three working definitions of what a case study is. Drs. Shaw and Bruce discussed how the case study design influenced their respective studies. Emphasis is placed on the application, expanding research, sampling, and theory building using a case study design. The information in this chapter could be helpful to a researcher contemplating the use of a case study design. Also, the authors indicated how current and future research can be influenced using a case study design. Information contained in this chapter assists researchers on key components using a case study design, and demonstrates the flexibility during the research process.
The Refractive Thinker series provides doctoral scholars with a collaborative opportunity to promote and publish their work in a peer reviewed publication, which meets the university standard. Our goal is to provide an affordable outlet for scholars that supports the tremendous need for dynamic dialogue and innovation while providing an additional clout and recognition for each contributing author. Unlike most academic books that merely define research, The Refractive Thinker offers unique application of research methodologies from the perspective of multiple authors each offering a chapter based on their specific expertise.
