Description

For your future research career you will need skills to seek trustworthy answers to your research questions. In order to gain valid answers, a series of pre-conditions has to be met. First of all, be very precise and specific in formulating what you want to know (your objectives). Second, focus on relevant aspects of your study (hypotheses, outcomes …). Third, after designing and conducting your study, apply appropriate statistics to summarize your results. And finally, think about limitations and strengths of your study in order to draw the right conclusion.

All this will be dealt with in this consolidation course, in which you will set up your own survey, go into action to get your own data, analyze the data, and present your own results in form of a poster to fellow students.

 

Lectures: Good research questions / Literature search, Create your own survey / Questionnaire design, Writing up the results of your study, How to do a poster and how to present it?
