Introduction

This book presents itself as a collaborative project entitled "Qualitative Approaches to Pedagogical Engineering." The aim of this work is to explore how qualitative approaches enrich our understanding of pedagogical experiences while fostering the development of effective and contextualized models. In this endeavor, we will delve into how qualitative research methods offer unique perspectives for comprehending the complexity of educational processes. By emphasizing the importance of contextualizing pedagogical practices, we seek to provide practitioners and researchers with valuable tools and insights to design relevant educational interventions tailored to diverse learning environments. The primary objective of this book is to explore the multiple dimensions of pedagogical engineering through the lens of qualitative approaches. By closely examining the interactions among teachers, learners, and learning content, we hope to identify innovative strategies to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in various educational contexts
