Starting your research project – Part 1

Thoughts and tips in developing a research agenda

A research agenda sets research priorities to improve the focus of your work and provides a framework to guide your decisions along the research process. In this webinar, we will discuss the key factors you will need to consider in establishing a research agenda, including:

  • Are you able to define the problem? If so, how and what is it?
  • What has prior research shown addressing this problem and where are the gaps?
  • How to set your research question? Do you address the gap or one of the gaps in prior research?
  • How do you propose to address it?
  • Discussion of the results and their implications to current theory and/or future practice
  • Discussion of the limitations of your work and extensions to pursue from this work
