Introduction to Research Awareness in Social Care

Overview

It might be useful to begin by saying what this course is not intended to be. It is not intended to be a research methods programme. Many people who have not studied research before are anxious that they will be confronted by a mass of confusing statistics which they neither feel equipped to understand, nor are particularly interested in.

This anxiety has its origins in a perception of research as something done by boffins in white coats surrounded by 'experiments' and computers churning out statistics which only they are qualified to understand. This course is intended to question this perception by highlighting that research is something we all do in our everyday lives.
