Methodological triangulation in work life research

potentials and challenges

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Based on examples from two research projects on preschool teachers' work, the paper will discuss potentials and challenges in methodological triangulation in work life research. Analysis of ethnographic and phenomenological inspired observations of everyday life in day care centers formed the basis for individual interviews and informal talks with employees. The interviews and conversations were based on a critical hermeneutic approach. The analysis of observations and interviews constituted a knowledge base as the project went in to the last phase: action research workshops. In the workshops findings from observations and interviews were brought in dialogue with participants' everyday experiences and knowledge.
