By Dr. Parthiban S. Gopal
Research design provides the glue that holds a research project/study together in a coherent and logical way, thereby, ensuring you will effectively address the research problem. These are some of the salient issues, among others, addressed in this course: why designs are often equated with qualitative and quantitative approach? What are the different types of research strategy? What are the many kinds of research? What are the differences among ontology (What is reality?), epistemology (How do you know something?) and methodology (How do go about finding out?) as far as a research design is concerned?
