This presentation will focus on setting up, running and completing a study prior to embarking on dissertation research. This is a great way to get your feet wet as an investigator and researcher. This will walk you through the steps necessary for both the “pilot” study and the dissertation from selecting the topic and focus group(s) all the way to carrying out the study and ultimately presenting and/or publishing the research. Ryan is currently conducting original research and will offer strong insights into considering topics and strategies for conducting research.
