Description

This session explores techniques for incorporating practical lessons about research methods into social science curricula. We argue, via examples from our own disciplines, that having students think concretely about the process of conducting research opens up opportunities to analyze the social world in a critical manner that can be fruitful in terms of developing problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.
