Book Review: Quantitative Ethnography by David Williamson Shaffer
Keywords:tutorials, quantitative ethnography, learning analytics methods, quantitative, qualitative
The title is provocative: Quantitative Ethnography. Those two words are rarely uttered in the same breath except in conflict! For the former to be an adjective to the latter is surely ridiculous. Yet the “quant/qual” gulf is precisely what David Williamson Shaffer seeks to bridge. His message: people, we’re all on the same side, and I’m not asking you to sacrifice the principles you hold so dearly.
