Inhoud
 Information and communication processes in social systems and support of these processes by means of ICT are key topics in the field of information science. These processes are studied from both a scientific and a design perspective. To this end, it is important that you as an information science expert have an understanding of scientific methods and research and data analysis. In this module you learn which research method to use, which methods for analysis go with it and how you can report the results. Basically we follow the empirical cycle:
  • Problem formulation
  • Various research methods
  • Different methods of analysis
  • Description of results and reporting
In addition to knowledge about various methods of scientific research, we pay attention to basic knowledge of inferential statistics, and you learn how to work with the statistical software package SPSS.
Keywords 
Research methods, qualitative and quantitative research, survey, design research, experimental research, inferential statistics.
