Chapter 21: The competing interests of paradigm and praxis in critical HRD research: incorporating quantitative methods to enact critical practice
AbstractIn this chapter, we challenge the hegemonic notion that the underlying values of critical paradigms necessitate qualitative research. We argue that a solitary focus on epistemological underpinnings is counterproductive to achieving critical social transformation. We offer an example of the interplay of quantitative and qualitative research toward addressing a Critical Human Resource Development (CHRD) issue.
