The data of interest in this case study is behavioral, and therefore adoption of a research methodology that involves field data collection through such means as observation and recording of behavior as they occur in their natural setting. This means that the researcher has to be in touch with the element under study and make observation and/ recording as it happens. While the theoretical explanation of this approach may appear complicated and tasking, it is worth noting that humans engage in qualitative data collection practices in almost all the daily interactions that we encounter. As noted by Giddens and Sutton (2010), participant observation is important in qualitative data collection as it allows the researcher to immerse into a system that in most circumstances is alien to the researcher, which could also limit the chances of biasness.
In this case, the researcher conducts the interview on a one-on-one basis, and follows a general plan of inquiry. While citing Oakley, Jamshed (2014) notes that the framework of qualitative interview is such that in addition to recording the practices and standards, the researcher is also able to achieve greater coherence, challenge the respondent as well as reinforce the objective. Through this approach, the researcher is capable of interacting with every sample within the population. It is worth noting that the method allows the researcher to obtain adequate information while maintaining its confidentiality, since participation is voluntary.
II. The second qualitative approach feasible for this type of research is immersion. In this case, the researcher plunges into the lifestyle of the students by living among them for a given period as may be convenient. However, this has the challenge that if the researcher is not of their age group, he/she may find it difficult to intermingle with them in order to be able to obtain adequate information.
To begin within, the success of research work, especially those
