Demystifying Research Methodology (6-session course)

Thursday 23rd May 2024, 1:00 PM - Thursday 4th July 2024 2:30 PM (London Time)

Course Overview

Delivered by our very own Sophie Scott, this six-session course provides an overview of qualitative research methods, and it is designed with voice practitioners in mind. It will examine the philosophical background to research; demystifying terms such as Ontology, Epistemology and Axiology. Our view of reality influences the choices we make when designing our research. What we consider to be true reality (ontology) and valuable knowledge (epistemology) shapes the way in which we approach our research. This influences our choice of methods as well as how we present our data. We view our research through the lens of a paradigm and the philosophical principles behind this enable us to consider our research through multiple lenses, from multiple perspectives. This provides depth and exciting possibilities. We will examine a selection of methodologies to give depth to the research design before examining methods, the tools by which we gather data. We will also cover the often-neglected component of data presentation and coding.
