IIE INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH

(Short Learning Programme)

INTRODUCTION

The IIE Introduction to Research SLP is aimed at students who would like to enroll into the IIE Honours programmes, but who did not complete a Research Methodology module in their undergraduate degree. As research underpins any Honours qualification, knowledge in this field is essential before embarking on your studies.

The main purpose of this module is therefore to introduce students to the theories, practices and institutions of industrial relations. The module examines the role, objectives and the interactions of the main actors in employment relations – employers (employer organisations), employees (trade unions), and the government.

What will I study in this SLP?

The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the process of research and to develop their ability to assess the validity of research findings. Students are therefore introduced to the process of identifying a research problem and formulating research questions and the techniques used to collect, analyse, interpret and evaluate data to solve the identified problem. Emphasis is placed on theoretical principles and procedures as well as ethical considerations. Skills are developed through controlled application of techniques as well as in interpretation and critical analysis of research in a relevant field of study.
