ABSTRACT  
This paper presents specific course strategies used during an independent study 
course that exposed students to qualitative research methods, cultural perspectives 
of an Amish quilting community, and the entrepreneurship strategy of niche marketing. 
Students enrolled in the course were involved in content creation; they discussed 
readings, role-played interviewing strategies, designed research projects, conducted 
research, and presented the results. Suggestions for developing effective independent 
study courses for other programs are presented.
