Wilfrid Laurier University’s Summer Institute for Research Methods (LSIRM) will offer introductory and advanced workshops on research methods during the month of July. The workshops are open to all students, professionals, government employees and academics.
“Our offerings are diverse because research is not just about numbers and data,” said Andrea Perrella, director of the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion Policy (LISPOP). “Today, more than ever, professionals are required to grapple with challenges that require the skills to size-up a problem so that a suitable solution can be determined.”
LSIRM is unique in that its offerings focus on applied research method skills and provides opportunities for professional development after graduation. Participants are also able to pick and choose the courses they want to take, making the offerings more flexible and affordable.
Some of the workshops include:
“I really enjoyed the interactive experience of these workshops,” said Tina Mangat, doctoral candidate in Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA). “The applied portions of the classes allowed me to practise a method or method-related skill, which gave me the confidence to trust my instinct more when analyzing data.”
Early-bird registration closes May 15.
