The primary data will be collected through in-depth interviews (content analysis approach) with Heads of departments and senior educators and the administration of structured questionnaires (closed and open-ended questions) to obtain responses from educators. Both qualitative and quantitative methodologies will be adopted to answer the research questions and objectives of the study. The questions will be coded and analysed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). Descriptive statistics in the form of frequencies, percentages such as histogram as well as bar chart will be used. Probability and non-probability sampling techniques will be employed in selecting respondents for the study.
The study that will be conducted using a quantitative method. This method is practiced survey types of data collection. There are various types of surveys such as telephone survey, mail survey or internet survey that's being used by researchers to collect data from the respondents. This study will use descriptive survey to collect the data, which will ask the participants to answer questions administered through questionnaires. This survey will conduct with a method of face to face in distributing the questionnaires to ensure the whether the participants answer all the questions or not.
Introduction The quantitative and qualitative approaches should not be understood as in one research is used only quantitative method, but in another one is used only the qualitative method. Both approaches represent certain systems of outlooks, within which ideas of cognitive functions of methods and priorities of its relevance for scientific research are formed. When you decide which model to choose, it is important to have the idea of what the main goal of collecting the information is. On the one hand, the qualitative approach is a research method in which the researcher has an active role in interacting with the participators or object he or she wishes to study. In other words, qualitative research is a method which creates verbal summaries
Some common methods include focus groups (group discussions), individual interviews, and participation/observations. The sample size is typically small, and respondents are selected to fulfil a given quota. Quantitative Research is used to quantify the problem by way of generating numerical data or data that can be transformed into useable statistics. It is used to quantify attitudes, opinions, behaviours, and other defined variables – and generalize results from a larger sample population. Quantitative Research uses measurable data to formulate facts and uncover patterns in research.
Particular points are focused in this approach instead of general points. Different methods are used in inductive approach for collecting data, which includes surveys, experiments, interviews, and observations. Under this approach, effective analysis of the primary data is provided which further helps in obtaining reliable and effective conclusions. This approach is used for qualitative studies because of which it is considered as appropriate for this considered study (Kuada, 2012). Research Design Various research designs are there that can be used by the researcher for analysing the collected data.
Section III. Choice of Research Method: Quantitative, Qualitative or Mixed? The selection of data analysis techniques to deal with research questions or hypotheses and the techniques chosen for the data collection is informed and guided by what we call the research method. Hence, research method is a procedure, and also the analytical techniques to be chosen and the methods to be chosen will also be dictated by the choices of the methodologies made and by the theoretical framework (Sumner and Tribe, 2008). Research methods for knowledge claim and strategies is of three types: quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods.

Primary data collection for quantitative studies consists of interviews, questionnaire survey and observational method. But here the researcher used questionnaire survey to collect data. A total of 25 participants were selected using convenience sampling method. Participants included first, second, third
Social media has allowed people to be more willing than ever before to share their personal lives. The digital world has created a continuously changing landscape of creative and expressive tools for people to use. Clever qualitative researchers will need to keep their respondents engaged while seeking out new ways to take advantage of this trend to benefit their clients (White, 2015). Current research methods will continue to be used if they are applicable and can fit the desired research. As data is extrapolated from consumers the gathered research reveals that it is more than just facts and figures.
There are three main types of research methodology: qualitative, quantitative and the mixed method approach. Qualitative research is collecting, interpreting and analysing data based on observing what people do or say. On the other hand, qualitative research refers to the meanings, definitions, metaphors, characteristics and description of things (Thomas, 2003). While, mixed research uses both qualitative and quantitative methods and blends the resulting data in certain ways (Jick, 1979). The design for this research is the use of a descriptive and interpretive focus group analyses through a mix method approach.
