Topic Details


Often times with research, our ideas come to us as vague "what if" scenarios. Other times we may have one very specific phenomenon that we want to research, but is it too specific? This session will discuss potential issues with having a topic that is too broad or too narrow. Attendees will be shown how the literature review and methods section can help regulate the size and direction of their research questions. Attendees will work in groups to help widen or narrow topics with each other, or work as a class to discuss how to do the same with example topics.
