Research Design -- 2019

Location: ICTA-UAB, room Z/033
Trainer: Isabelle Anguelovsky (ICTA-UAB)
Dates: 25-26 September 2019
Schedule: 9h to 17:30h (approx.)

Target audience: PhDs who started in the academic year 2018/2019 (open to others if spots available)

This course develops core skills in research design, guides students through the logic of the research enterprise, and provides them with the analytical, methodological, technological tools necessary to conduct research. While the course will incorporate examples from the natural sciences and engineering, most of its emphasis are on projects with a **social science** component in it. Throughout the course, we move from the conceptual and epistemological aspects of research design (including research question and literature review) to the development of research methods and case study selection. By the end of the course, students will be able to explain the purpose of their research and design a study. Students should also be able to critique and evaluate the research conducted by other researchers. Please note that this is not a Methods course. The class will be organized and led as a research seminar with readings, discussions, and in-class exercises. Students are expected to come prepared to class with readings completed and participate actively in class discussion.
