Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course is about conducting research, both in academia and in practice. Specifically, we will focus on basic steps of the scientific inquiry, starting with the topic selection, and progressing through to literature review, hypotheses generation, choice of analysis method, and methods of propagating the research results to wide audiences (written and oral presentations). Throughout the semester we will become familiar with the most advanced current topics, presented by guest speakers and the ANR researchers. Whether you plan to work in the corporate world, or develop your career in academia, you will be forced to generate knowledge and disseminate it to others, so there is no doubt that you will use the skills acquired in this course.
