Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the considerations and details of the methodology of the original research and the modifications to that methodology which have been made to produce a distinctive work in this book. The intent of the investigation is to reveal, examine, and retell the experiential stories of faculty impacted by corporate sector partnerships; therefore, qualitative methods are appropriate, as these approaches can help in "understanding how participants perceive their roles or tasks in an organization" and in "determining the history of a situation". Inquiry grounded in qualitative methodology takes for granted a generative, constructed reality which is both multidimensional and in a continuous state of change. This chapter has detailed the procedures for recruitment, data collection and analysis, and the restorying of participants' stories as a means of providing the reader with confidence in the methods employed in the inquiry on which this volume is based.
