Abstract: Qualitative methodology has become widespread and accepted in educational research in Europe. The article reviews European efforts toward the methodological grounding of qualitative research approaches (with a focus on the Dutch and German speaking communities). The authors describe the research agenda favoring the use of qualitative methods: reconstruct‐ivist studies, focused on the reconstruction of subjective meaning and development; and interventionist studies, aimed at changing and improving educational situations.

Kwalitatieve methodologie is wijdverbreid en in onderwijs-kundig onderzoek in Europa geaccepteerd. Het artikel bespreekt de Europese inspanningen in de richting van de methodologische aarding van de kwalitatieve aanpak van het onderzoek (met een focus op de Nederlandse en Duitstalige gemeenschappen). De auteurs beschrijven de onderzoeksagenda ten gunste van het gebruik van kwalitatieve methoden: reconstrueren-ivist studies, gericht op de reconstructie van de subjectieve betekenis en ontwikkeling, en interventionistische studies, gericht op verandering en verbetering van pedagogische situaties.
