Case Study

Hi, My dissertation was a case study - I looked at a professional develpment program that laasted eight years (at the time). If you are interested in doing a case study, I may be able to answer some of your questions - or not. But at least you can ask!


I have my proposal meeting on Sept 11 for a case study that I am doing for my dissertation. My study is a multiple case study with a cross-case analysis. I am looking at online high school programs to find out what characteristics of the program indicate quality of instruction and then comparing how the different programs do that. I have two programs on board at the moment - VHS and IMSA. I am hoping to get the Clark County NV virtual school to agree to participate but they want to see IRB approval before they will agree to participate. Hopefully after I have my proposal and then do the IRB they will say yes..

Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated. I have to finish my dissertation this year because three of my four committee members are starting phased retirement and will be gone by May 2007 so I am under a tight time line.

Jean. You may want to visit with Joy Lopez on this site. Joy's dissertation looked at teacher practices within an online high school as well. She has a deep set of references.
