And we love taking what happens in the room and teasing out the ideas and mashing them up with what we know ourselves until we can deliver a really varied, exciting set of options. But in between the room and the options lie at least a couple of weeks worth of work. Those weeks can give our clients a chance to reflect on the insights that emerged, and their team members a chance to start trying out the tools and approaches they discovered in the workshop.
Well, a report is indeed important, not only as a follow-up evaluation for my boss whether it was a good value for the time and money that was spent, but also as test for my ability to remember and jot down things very quickly.
Here are some tips that I can share you: The workshop was very interesting and gave the opportunity to learn many issues in regards to research procedures. As a trainer who needs to do some research in the future, I find it was a very enriching experience for me. I will describe briefly below some elements in the workshop.
Since the seminar started late 1 hour the fifth session of working with research proposals was changed by discussion with participants.
Participants were offered to contact both speakers for further consultation via online. The seminar was led by Prof. Rambir Singh Malik, Ph.
Fuad Abdul Hamied, Ph. Fuad on paradigms in research undertaking. In short, he presented that there are two diverging epistemological lines in the paradigm: British empiricism and German rationalism. From British emerged logico-positivistic quantitative paradigm that leads quantitative research.
From German perspective, human subjectivity is unavoidable in the process of research; therefore reality is at least partly constructed by us through our observation.
This leads to qualitative paradigm of research. I put notes on when we use quantitative research, i. That is why Quantitative Research is generally made using the generation of models, theories and hypotheses, the development of instruments and methods for measurement, experimental control and manipulation of variables, collection of empirical data, and modeling and analysis of data.
Ranbir on Qualitative Research Methodology. He put Denzin and Lincoln definition that qualitative research is a situated activity that locate the observer.
Qualitative investigates subjective human experience, describe or observe complex processes and aim to understand social context.
Qualitative choices related to data collection ranging from grounded theory, ethnography, phenomenology, document analysis, case study, etc. The most common method is the qualitative research interview, but forms of the data collected can also include group discussions, observation and reflection field notes, various texts, pictures, and other materials.
There are many different ways of establishing trustworthiness, such as member check, interviewer corroboration, peer debriefing, prolonged engagement, negative case analysis, auditability, confirmability, bracketing, and balance.
MMS is a new approach which put qualitative and quantitative data together. The central aim is that a combination of both approaches provides better understanding of research problem than either approach alone. Since the time was limited, we only had less than one hour to do it.
Participants were actively involved in the discussion, mostly on issues on convergent designs, embedded designs, and multiphase designs.
I asked a question on methodological challenge in using MMS: If I made a study that merges the data during a concurrent design, and the findings conflicted or were contradictory, what the steps that I should do.
In short, Prof Ranbir and Prof Fuad responses were that strategy of resolving differences needs to be considered, such as gathering more data or revisiting the databases.
They said that making an interpretation based on integrated results may be challenging because of the unequal emphasis placed on each dataset by the researcher, the accuracy or validity of each dataset, and whether philosophies related to quantitative or qualitative research can or should be combined.Sample Lab Report #2.
