Designing educational and social research

Core Unit 2

This unit will provide you with an understanding of the research design process. It will start with framing the issue and reviewing the literature. You will learn how to formulate research questions and hypotheses, and how in turn decisions made at this stage shape the research design. You will be presented with a selection of common research designs and a wide range of research data collection approaches and analytical tools. The focus of this unit is on the decision making process researchers need to go through, underpinned by political and ethical issues which need to be taken into account.
