The main purpose of this course is to focus on good questions and how to answer them. This is essential to making considered decisions as a leader in any organization or in your life overall. Topics will include the basis of human curiosity, development of questions, connections between questions and approaches to information gathering design , variable measurement, sampling, the differences between experimental and non-experimental designs, data analysis, reporting and the ethics of inquiry projects. Emphasis will be placed on approaches used in the social sciences (i.e., sociology, psychology, anthropology), but we will also discuss how others (i.e., natural scientists, business analysts) might approach the inquiry process. No prior knowledge of statistics is required for this course.

Meilleurs avis pour RESEARCH DESIGN: INQUIRY AND DISCOVERY
The course is easy to follow and you will surely learn a lot if you are a beginner.. I think the course needs to improve on test construction as some items may seem to be too ambiguous..
This course has taught me to be more of a logical thinker. To use data and research to make better conclusions on topics that need analyzation.
Sound quality was inconsistent. At times, it sounded like the instructor's voice was breaking up (nothing wrong with the sound on my PC).
A good introductory course that has helped contextualise other study materials that I am working my way through.
