Justification of New Course Proposal
EDFI 837 Qualitative Case Study is one of the five 800-level advanced seminar courses offered in the Graduate Certificate in Qualitative Research program. When taught as a special topics course in spring 2014 (n=8), the instructor received favorable student evaluation (Global Index = 4.73). The course is taught currently (fall 2018, n=14). Qualitative case studies are a core research design in the field of qualitative methodologies and one of the most common research designs for dissertations in the College of Education.
The Graduate Certificate in Qualitative Research program brings together several courses in qualitative research theory, method, and design in an effort to prepare graduate students, professors, professional researchers, program evaluators, etc. to conduct and apply best practices in the study of qualitative research and in conducting qualitative inquiry. The certificate program is open to all post-Masters students in education and related disciplines interested in developing expertise in qualitative research methods.

More details on attendance policy as it currently just states: "Students who miss three classes will receive a reduction in their grade." How much for missing three or more?
