Aims

After completing this course you are able to:

  1. Reproduce and interpret the research topics, research approaches, and main findings of a variety of academic fields, among which business and economics, the humanities, law, and social sciences.
  2. Develop the explanations of a practical phenomenon from an academic discipline assigned to you.
  3. Work together in a team and reflect upon the team's performance.
  4. Assess your understanding of and preferences for academic fields.
Content
Researchers and their Fields focuses on the choices researchers in different academic disciplines make. It is positioned in between philosophy of science and a more hands-on introduction to research methods. Topics include the objectives of research, the relevance of practice for academic work (and how to go about the relationship), ethics in research, the role of the researcher in his/her research, etcetera. A series of lectures showcases researchers' choices on these topics. In smaller teams, supported by a lecturer, you perform a piece of research yourself and reflect upon the process. The course includes a role play in which you defend the position assumed in the paper.
