Training, Mentorship & Coaching in Research
I currently offer courses in qualitative and mixed methods research. What sets my training apart is the development of unique approaches and tools aimed at simplifying research concepts and their practical application. My primary objective is to empower inexperienced researchers to produce high-quality research outcomes comparable to those of experienced researchers like myself.
Following each training, participants will receive a set of valuable tools to use as references for their future research tasks. These tools are designed to provide comprehensive guidance on applying the research concepts they’ve learned, making the process more straightforward. They include:
- Step-by-step Guide: This guide offers a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to performing research tasks, ensuring a structured and effective process.
- Templates: Templates serve as skeletons for performing research tasks, outlining key elements to include in the completed research product. They streamline the research process.
- Scripts: Examples of phrases and language to use when drafting various research products, such as research proposals and study reports. These scripts help in effective communication.
- Checklists: Quality assurance tools that enable researchers to double-check if all required components and standards have been met in their final research deliverable.
- Completed Task Examples: These examples serve as models of how the final research deliverables should appear, offering a reference point for quality and presentation.
By providing these resources, I aim to empower researchers with the necessary tools to excel in their research endeavors, making the journey from novice to expert researcher more manageable and efficient.
