Mini-course information:
Title: Qualitative Methods in Software Engineering Research
Duration: 2 hs

Abstract: Empirical studies in software engineering are a well-established approach to investigating important research questions. But increasingly the important research questions in our field address the human aspects of software development, and this adds a new layer of complexity to an already challenging area. Along with new research questions, new research methods are needed to study nontechnical aspects of software engineering. In many other disciplines, qualitative research methods have been developed and are commonly used to handle the complexity of issues involving human behavior. This mini-course presents several qualitative methods for data collection and analysis and describes them in terms of how they might be incorporated into empirical studies of software engineering, in particular how they might be combined with quantitative methods. To illustrate this use of qualitative methods, examples from real software engineering studies are used throughout the presentation.

Short bio:
Dr. Seaman is an Associate Professor of Information Systems at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). Her research generally falls under the umbrella of empirical studies of software engineering, with particular emphases on maintenance, organizational structure, communication, measurement, COTS-based development, and qualitative research methods. Dr. Seaman is also a Research Fellow at the Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering, Maryland, where she participates in research on experience management in software engineering organizations and software metrics. Currently, during the 2012-13 academic year, she is spending a sabbatical as a visiting researcher in Brazil, based at the Center for Informatics at the Federal University of Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil, where she is conducting research in the management of software technical debt. She holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, College Park, a MS in Information and Computer Science from Georgia Tech, and a BA in Computer Science and Mathematics from the College of Wooster (Ohio). She has worked in the software industry as a software engineer and consultant, and has conducted most of her research in industrial and governmental settings (e.g. IBM Canada Ltd., NASA, Xerox).
