The life-course approach is one of the most common frameworks used when studying young people and ‘involves a recognition that, rather than following fixed and predictable life stages, we live dynamic and varied life courses which have, themselves, different situated meanings ’ (Hopkins & Pain, 2007, p.290). Or, in a metaphorical sense, Hockey and James (2003) noted that the life-course approach has ‘been adopted as a way of envisaging the passage of a lifetime less as the mechanical turning of a wheel and more as the unpredictable flow of a river’.

Following my previous post, I wonder if you can further give me some implications about combining qualitative and quantitative methods.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
