Course Contents : This course generally focuses on stating research problems/questions, conducting critical literature review, selecting appropriate research models, using data collection methods and data analysis techniques and writing research articles. It covers philopsohical foundations, priorities, advantages and limitations of both quantitative and qualitative research paradigms. Regarding quantitative research perspective, the course explores descriptive (survey), experimental, correlational and casual-comparative research designs, establishing instruments, sampling strategies, analyses of validity and reliability, measures of central tendency and variability, parametric and nonparametric stattistical tests, correlation, regression and factor analysis. As far as qualitative research is concerned, the course explores etnographic, historical, case study, focus group, biographical research designs, data collection tools (observation, interview, document analysis, etc.), reliability isssues, content analysis, thematic analysis and grounded teory.
