Non-Faculty-Based Departments (Centre For Devt. Of Teaching & Learning)
Modular Credits: --
finding a worthwhile topic to work on; clarifying and refining it into a research question/problem that lends itself to investigation within the available time and resources.
finding an answer/solution to the research question/problem, using methodological strategies appropriate to it. If the outcome of research is a set of statements (as in pure research), it involves formulating the answers/solutions as research claims.
testing and critically evaluating the research output. In the case of research claims, this involves providing justification in support of the claim sufficient to convince the skeptical experts in the field.
communicating all of the above, clearly, precisely, and persuasively, through oral or written presentation, using appropriate rhetorical strategies and conventions.
