11.233 Research Design for Policy Analysis and Planning (MIT) 11.233 Research Design for Policy Analysis and Planning (MIT)

Description

This course develops skills in research design for policy analysis and planning. The emphasis is on the logic of the research process and its constituent elements. The course relies on a seminar format so students are expected to read all of the assigned materials and come to class prepared to discuss key themes, ideas, and controversies. Since the materials draw broadly on the social sciences, and since students have diverse interests and methodological preferences, ongoing themes in our discussions will be linking concepts to planning scholarship in general and considering how different epistemological orientations and methodological techniques map on to planning specializations.

DATUM for Health: Research data management training for health studies

Description

The DATUM for Health training programme is aimed at postgraduate research (i.e. doctoral) students (PGR) in health studies, including those whose PhD has a health focus but who are not necessarily registered in a school/faculty of health/medicine (e.g. in psychology, social sciences). The programme covers both generic and discipline-specific issues, focussing on the management of qualitative, unstructured data, and is suitable for students at any stage of their PhD. It aims to provide PGR students with the knowledge to manage their research data at every stage in the data lifecycle, from its creation to its final storage or destruction. Students learn how to use their data more effectively and efficiently, how to store and destroy it securely, and how to make it available to a wider audien

17.869 Political Science Scope and Methods (MIT) 17.869 Political Science Scope and Methods (MIT)

Description

This course is designed to provide an introduction to a variety of empirical research methods used by political scientists. The primary aims of the course are to make you a more sophisticated consumer of diverse empirical research and to allow you to conduct sophisticated independent work in your junior and senior years. This is not a course in data analysis. Rather, it is a course on how to approach political science research.

Introduction to Research Data Management - slideshows

Description

These slideshows provide a brief introduction to key issues in research data management. They are designed for use in induction events, or as part of a research skills course. Three versions are provided: all cover broadly the same ground, but in different degrees of detail. The longest of the three includes some issues that are of particular relevance to researchers at postdoctoral level or above. These slideshows are part of a set of resources created as part of the Sudamih Project at Oxford University Computing Services. (NB. The slides use an OUCS design template, but users are welcome to transfer the content to their own institutional template as appropriate.)

Introduction to research data management - case studies

Description

Three research data management case studies (one each from the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences), presented as slideshows. Based on information given by real researchers, these are designed to provide concrete examples of a number of aspects of data management practice. The slideshows are part of a set of resources created by the Jisc-funded DaMaRO Project at the University of Oxford. They can be used in conjunction with the DaMaRO Project's half-day Introduction to Research Data Management course materials, to provide discipline-specific examples, or as a standalone resource to trigger discussion.

Subjects
