Introduction to Research Methods & Action Research

This course will introduce students to the basic concepts, theories, methods and the major steps involved in conducting both a research study & action research. The areas covered include: the research process and the structure of the enquiry process; different methods of observation and data collection; techniques for analyzing and presenting data and writing the research report. As a result of familiarizing the student with various research approaches, he/she will apply this knowledge to the Belizean society in a course project.

The rationale of this course is to give a well-rounded view of the discipline to students who take only an introductory course; to provide a social science support core course; and to provide, for those who plan to concentrate in the social sciences, the necessary background for further study.

Hence, upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

• Understand the steps involved in conducting a research study.
• Understand the elements of the research design in the social sciences & action research.
• Understand quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis methodologies.
• Develop insightful and practical research questions and hypotheses
• Develop the appropriate presentation and writing skills necessary for the proper dissemination of research findings.
• Identify and explain the major ethical dilemmas of the research process
• Engage in the research process by conducting a research project.

Learn English Efficiently: Customized Lessons (CELTA Certified)
Hi, my name is Jenni and I am a bilingual native speaker of English and Finnish. My English accent is British and my Finnish has a very neutral accent. I am a CELTA certified English teacher and have been teaching English full-time since 2014 in countries such as Ireland, China and Japan. I have taught both adults and children in private lessons as well as groups. My students have been everything from business professionals to teenagers preparing for their exchange year abroad to young children having their first contact with a foreign language. My greatest strength as a teacher is my experience from using different methods of teaching as well as different levels of students. I customise all my lessons to my students’ needs. Whether you are just beginning to learn English or already have a high level of English and are looking to keep up your skills or perhaps master a grammar point, I am confident I can help you achieve your goal. As a teacher I will customise each of our lessons to your needs and wants. Usually this means that I will assess your level of English during our first lesson. Then by asking you specific questions I find out more about why you are studying English and what is the goal you wish to achieve.We will also together decide what kind of materials (if any) we will use during our lessons. All of this I do so I know how to help you achieve your personal goal. A happy student makes a happy teacher! I look forward to our lessons!

EPFL Master Mechanics helps you succeed in your math & physics exams
Today in master's degree in energy at EPFL, I offer maths, physics, chemistry and science courses in general for students of all levels. With a demanding bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, I am ready to put my knowledge and my pedagogy at the service of your success. I approach my classes in a structured way, we will see together the course and the bases that the student follows to make sure of the total comprehension of the subjects discussed, before being able to carry out exercises to put into practice and to consolidate the theory. I will first let the student do the exercise independently before reviewing together the positive and negative points. I have already given tutorials in Mathematics and am currently attending the Bachelor's First Year Physics course. I received a training dedicated to Student Assistants to train them in this assignment.

Student in MPSI gives maths and physics from high school to high school on Tours
I am a cool person who does not like to take the lead, with me the lessons are fun and practical and I know how to convey my enthusiasm for science subjects. I am very close to the scientific news and I know many sources on the internet that could take over my courses if you want to deepen a topic. My classes are essentially directed from the concrete to the abstract. I am a student in Maths sup / Maths special at High School Descartes of Tours. I got the BAC S with honors in 2017. I have never taught other people than my little sisters, but I often help my classmates in preparation, they know that I can conceptualize courses and I can give a different point of view than the teacher (which is very academic), which helps them to identify the subject. - I skipped class of CE2 (in Belhomert) - I got my Brevet des collèges mention Très Bien: 16,2 / 20 (at the magnifying glass) - I obtained the BAC S mention Very Good: 17.4 / 20 (Lycée Rémi Belleau) I also won a website creation contest at Lycée Rémi Belleau.
