This workshop teaches the basic principles of designing a research project in the context of higher education. We explore quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method research designs and methodologies as well as sampling and data collection techniques. We also discuss limitations and advantages to different research designs with a focus on selecting the correct design for the research problem.

  • Identify a research project, draft appropriate research questions, and identify its research design.
  • Articulate the differences between quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method research designs.
