The Use Of Narrative Inquiry In Student Affairs Research, Robert D. Reason Apr 2001

The Use Of Narrative Inquiry In Student Affairs Research, Robert D. Reason

Education Publications

The author examines the use of narrative inquiry in student affairs research based on the benefits of qualitative research presented by Magolda (1999). Three benefits of narrative research are presented, along with implications for student affairs research. Benefits include an increased access to student experiences and campus culture, as well as better-informed theories. Implications include changes in epistemological assumptions and a greater emphasis on student growth and relationships. The author draws on original narrative research to examine the benefits and implications.
