Research Methods

to support students enrolled in RES701

Identifying the right approach……

Last week we talked about ontology and epistemology and the importance of these concepts to research that we do.  We talked about how it is important to identify what kind of knowledge you want to discover as that affects the way you go about looking for that knowledge.  Identifying the ontology and epistemology of our own, or others’, research is important as it underlies the choice of research method and the credibility of the results.  We will be doing quite a lot of work on this theme over the next few weeks and will start with an interesting activity (wait for class to find out more!)

At the start of the class I will make my notes visible here.
