INR300 - Critical Analysis of Research


ENG106 (or equivalent) + INR200/INT202 or permission of the coordinator.

This course will explore the major theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of research and examine the ways in which research designs relate to the development of supportable conclusions and the validity and reliability of research findings. The ways in which the choice of paradigm, conceptual framework, approach, design and data collection and analysis influences the outcomes of a research study will be examined, as well as the ethical considerations for social research. This holistic approach chosen for this course differs from the more traditional introductory methods courses which often focus solely on technical procedures. Through the analysis and evaluation of published research articles and reports students will develop the skills for critically evaluating the choice of a variety of research methods and the reliability and validity of research studies.
