Qualitative, quantitative, mixed-method research. 2. Research project – what I want to investigate (research question, hypotheses, variables), where, whom (selection and size of research sample), how (selection of data collection instruments based on research design, process of data collection, data analysis and evaluation using software), and when (time schedule). Validity, reliability. 3. Observation (observation schemes, evaluation, work with video-recordings, shadowing of teacher’s, headmaster’s or pupil’s work). Interview (interrogating techniques, functions of questions). Collection of documents and products of activities – content analysis. 4. Qualitative coding and data analysis. 5.
