This course builds upon the foundation of quantitative and qualitative research methods as well as conceptualization of research to guide students in the development of a research proposal. Students will develop the ability and capacity to select and apply appropriate research strategies for addressing issues from a diverse array of educational, social and related situations. Upon completion of the course, candidates should have drafted a research proposal. This course is also intended to help student researchers to structure and write their thesis and research articles better. The focus will be on the process of actually structuring and writing proposal as well as papers, or bigger projects such as a thesis (but less with research methodology or strategies for managing the project), on argumentation, logical reasoning, structure, and the like.

The course is designed to assist students to begin a systematic preparation for identifying problems that are considered important for scholarly communications, clarifying research ideas and concepts, evaluating critically research reports, formulating research questions by focusing on specific aspects of a broader research topic, and defining precisely the aim and objectives of a study. Since students with different backgrounds will come into the course with a variety of interest and skills, and would probably plan to embark on a wide range of areas, the course is designed to identify and build their capacities relevant to conducting research, provide focused specialist input, and offer a collective forum for debating research approaches. The course will also address the issue of how might educational and social researchers make ethical decisions when conducting research and minimize the potential risk to participants in the study.
