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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM RESEARCH DESIGN: INQUIRY AND DISCOVERY
Sound quality was inconsistent. At times, it sounded like the instructor's voice was breaking up (nothing wrong with the sound on my PC).
This course is desined in a nice way to learn the basics of Research design.
More examples and exercises can be given on sampling. Hands on experience required.
The classes were amazing, I really enjoyed it
thank you Miss Susan Watson
