Course Descriptions for the Computer & Information Systems Department

DISC9517 - Research Design Seminar
Summer 2014: Doctora

This course is designed to enable students to understand and apply research methods drawn from Communications and Information Systems methodologies, for collecting data to answer field project research questions. The course includes instruction and practice in sampling, instrumentation, and data collection procedures for both qualitative and quantitative methods in order to construct feasible and purposeful research designs. Primary focus will be on methods most appropriate for students? needs, but a range of methods will be covered to ensure familiarity with typical designs in Communications and Information Systems fields, both as a consumer of research and a practitioner. Ethical issues in research will be examined, and researcher assumptions and design limitations will be addressed as research designs are drafted. The aims are to prepare students to complete the Proposal Methodology chapter.
