Theory and Practice of Online Research (One semester 25 students per year – 3 hours of lecture/class time per week). – This course serves as the department’s introduction to qualitative research. The innovative aspect of this is that it takes advantage of the technologies and research opportunities available via the Internet. While most students have utilised the Internet for entertainment or to find basic information for course work, few use it for what it is best at – delivering information. As such, most students tend to under-utilise, poorly-utilise or outright neglect the Internet as a source of information and as a platform for conducting research. This course has been designed to address these issues by systematically taking students through the core processes and steps involved in conducting academic research and how these can be carried conducted online.
For the academic year 02/03 this course was commissioned, and funded, by the Centre for Sociology, Anthropology and Politics and has had numerous academic and teaching related findings published in books and article form.
