Overview

Why is research so important?

Imagine a world without research, where governments implement policy based on hunches and manufacturers release products without testing.

Research allows us to solve problems on a global scale and make evidenced-based decisions.

On this course, you’ll get an introduction to what research is, and why it’s so important to us all. You’ll learn about key research concepts, and use real-world case studies to analyse different research scenarios.

You’ll discover how to make evidenced-based decisions effectively, and learn to identify an interest area for your own research.

This course is aimed at anyone interested in research, but may be of particular interest to people who are undertaking a research project related to their profession or area of study.
