Qualitative research is ‘...a situated activity that locates the observer in the world. It considers a set of interpretative, material practices that make the world visible…[it] involves an interpretive, naturalistic approach to the world. This means qualitative researchers study things in their natural settings, attempting to make sense of, or to interpret, phenomena in terms of the meanings people bring to them’ (Denzin & Lincoln, 2000).
