Core Methodologies in Quantitative Research In-Person

Are you conducting quantitative research and working on a research strategy that focuses on quantifying the collection and analysis of data? Or, are you doing qualitative research but are finding it useful to learn another skill set and be equipped to carry out cross-disciplinary research? Or simply, you would like to be able to understand statistics when you read an article and know how to interpret the data presented. Either way, this research skills series could help you understand data and statistics and the use of them for academic research.

This series serves as an introductory level suitable for beginners or individuals seeking a refresher, paving the way for deeper exploration into research skills and the establishment of a supportive community tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of its members. (For participants who attended the three-session series on quantitative research training in November-December 2023, the content of the first session may have some overlap with the previous series, while session 2 presents fresh material. You are very welcome to join us.)

Speaker: Dr. Philip Dee, Academic Development Department (ADD), Faculty of HELS

Dr. Philip Dee has worked at BCU for 20 years and in that time has evolved his support role to include research and statistics. He has a PhD in Nuclear Physics and during his time at BCU has ‘translated’ his research knowledge in order to offer support in the faculty of HELS to research-active staff and students and is currently an active supervisor up to PhD level. To consolidate his research skills, Philip has recently completed a degree with the Open University in ‘Mathematics and Statistics’ and is a member of the Royal Statistics Society (RSS). He maintains a YouTube channel which supports many aspects of academic support, numeracy and statistics.
