How to get Started on Research

What is research?

This module provides a general introduction to research including ways of acquiring knowledge and factors that influence research.

What do you think about when you hear the term 'research'? Do you think about:

  • scientists at work in the laboratory?
  • the telemarketers who ring you up at dinner time?
  • the opinion polls referred to on the television news?
  • how the latest model from Holden gets designed?
  • how Vodafone developed 3G technology?
  • a group of people discussing their views on "designer babies"?

These are ALL examples of research.

Write down one or two examples of research that relate to your field of study.
