This preview shows page 16 - 17 out of 36 pages.

c. What’s your method of Analysis: i. Discourse (What does the text say) ii. Content analysis (What does the text means) 1. Sit down and count number of observations of certain words and phrases 2. How do you know what words/phrases appeal to you? c iii. Process tracing (Looking at the outcome and tracing the decision making that happened to get to that outcome; what were the key decisions that led to that outcome) iv. Counterfactuals (Thought experiment) 1. What if we change one thing, how will that effect other things v. Analytical technique can either be qualitative or quantitative analysis d. How does this connect to your theory? i. There is no right answer! 5. References a. Bibliography (your plan for your research project) Research Funding: 40-40-20 Rule for Professors o 40% Research (No money from your school so you have to apply for grants for money for travel, materials, help and time) Federal Level: CIHR IRSC, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SHRC), Natural Sciences Engineering Research Council (NSERC CRSNG) Provincial Granting Agencies (I.e. Ontario research grants) Municipal Research Grants Private Funding: Aga Khan Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society etc. Can start getting murky because when you’re working for the private sector, it starts becoming more about research advocacy o 40% Teaching (Get paid to teach) o 20% Service (Get paid for services to the university) Collaboration for research projects are more appealing to funding agencies Research Ethics: Idea that research is a good thing BUT is it always ethical? What determines this? Depends where you live as different countries have different standards on what is legal or inappropriate According to TTPS: Core Principles include consent, privacy and discourse a. Respect for persons i. Understanding and recognizing that an individual is autonomous and has their own free will Is your research limiting their autonomy? ii. Respect the dignity of participants who have already lost their autonomy 1. I.e. Inmates may feel coerced into participating in this research; Fear of offending researchers in positions of authority; pressure from one’s family, friends or community 2. Children/people with cognitive impairment, people with mental health issues may not be able to make decisions on their own behalf a. May be more vulnerable

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
