In this updated version of her innovative and distinctive book, "Stretching" Exercises for Qualitative Researchers, author Valerie J. Janesick extends her dance and yoga metaphors to strengthen her argument that tapping into one's artistic side-the side that is more creative and less inhibited-is fundamental to realizing one's potential as a qualitative researcher. With a focus on developing habits of mind through intuition and creativity, this Third Edition provides a series of exercises that are both imaginative and immensely practical in helping students to see the artistic side of research and reflection. Thoroughly classroom tested, these exercises demystify the research process and help researchers become more active observers, interviewers, and learners as they develop and critique their habits of observation, questioning, creativity, writing, and analysis.
