Research skills: Analysing research designs
Full course description
Before you are able to conduct academic research yourself you need to know which skills are required for executing research. The course Analysing Research Designs is offered to provide you with insights into the process of academic research. The ‘black box’ of doing research is opened up by making explicit every step and decision in the construction of a research design. In this course you will learn which choices researchers have to make with regard to research design and you will develop the skill to identify choices of research design in academic texts produced by scholars from various disciplines.
- To train students in their ability to identify the decisions involved in the development of a research design.
- To train students in their ability to critically assess academic research with regard to research design and research methods.
