SOCS3200.3 - Presenting your research
  • Duration

    3 weeks
  • Weekly study

    0 hours

In this module, you will be working on techniques of communicating your research – as an oral presentation and as a written report. Presenting your research to other students and giving constructive feedback will be a major part of the course from the end of this module, so we will look at some examples and discuss strategies to communicate in an engaging way.

You will have started working on your own project by now. As you analyse the data using the techniques you learned in the last module, what techniques can you use to ‘tell the story’ of your data in a persuasive and engaging way? We also look at the variety of ways qualitative data can be used – in academic, policy, media and legal settings.

Finally, while you are using interviews or focus groups as your method, there is a good argument for combining these with systematic, qualitative observation methods. These are out of the scope of your project, but we will hear about them from people who use them regularly and have the opportunity to practice some of the observing and recording techniques that you may want to use in the future.
