Workshop 4: Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods
venue: Big seminar room, Convention Centre by the Observatory, Geismar Landstr. 11, 37083 Göttingen
Target group: Beginners
Available seats: 20
This course seeks to introduce you to the fundaments of quantitative research. It is mainly designed for those who begin to learn those methods and plan to conduct a quantitative research project.
This course will provide an overview of the quantitative research process and discuss the main components, including research questions, research hypotheses, research design, data collection, and data analysis. You will engage and analyze published research articles based on quantitative methods and develop your own research plan based on your research endeavor. In doing so, you will learn how to encounter common pitfalls and challenges of quantitative research and handle such to be prepared for your future quantitative research.
The following topics will be covered:
- Research question development
- Hypotheses derivation
- Study design
- Types of data
- Statistical analysis
Some familiarity with basic statistical terminologies is necessary to participate properly. In addition to that, reading the following literature is obligatory:
