Kursinnehåll

The importance and relevance of conducting scientific research is imperative for our understanding of phenomena, issues and problems which are around us. Therefore, it is of immense importance that students understand how to conduct, design, implement, analyze and interpret research with a scientific and systematic approach. Specifically, the course will help students to understand, the philosophical roots underpinning research such as the epistemological basis for generating scientific knowledge and the demarcation between science and pseudoscience. Furthermore, the course provides students an opportunity to discuss approaches for searching relevant literature in order to form sound empirical and theoretical understanding of the phenomenon being investigated. The course also covers aspects of crafting research reports, understanding the research process, advice on how to write a thesis, and how to begin problematizing and formulating a purpose for a research project and its relevance for practice. A number of research methodologies are introduced which will help students to determine an appropriate data collection strategy. Included (among other topics) are sampling issues, case study research, surveys, interviews and experiments. Finally, methods for analyzing and presenting your data, such as inferential statistics, qualitative/quantitative content analysis, grounded theory are presented.
