This program seeks to provide inputs on some of the important steps in the process of doing academic research for publishing in academic journals and for completing doctoral dissertation work. It focuses on the behavioral areas of management namely: organizational behavior, human resource management, organization theory, strategic management, and marketing.
It seeks to provide inputs on the principles as well as procedures associated with some of the important steps in the academic research process including research question identification, concept specification, theory building, hypothesis specification, scale development, research design specification, and documentation of research process and outcome.
Inputs will be provided on the following steps.
- Research question identification
- Theory building (concept specification, choosing premises, doing logical reasoning, etc.)
- Hypothesis specification
- Scale development and scale validation
- Research design specification (survey designs, experimental design, and quasi-experimental designs)
- Documentation of the research process and outcomes
Data analysis for hypothesis testing will not be covered for which inputs from a statistical data analysis course will be relevant. However, some broad guidelines on the steps in the process of hypothesis testing will be covered.
All sessions in this FDP will be singlehandedly taught by the program coordinator, Dr. Badrinarayan Shankar Pawar. The pedagogy will reflect the coordinator’s extensive experience of teaching research methods for academic research. This experience includes teaching research methods and advanced research methods courses to doctoral program students and teaching research methods course to faculty development program participants.
