Leerdoelen Upon successful completion of the course unit, students are able to:

1. distinguish and relate different theories and research methods in CIS research (1.1, 1.2, 2.1)
2. value research within the field and interpret its results in terms of their practical implications (2.1, 2.2, 3.1)
3. identify their own interests, strengths and weaknesses in relation to current research methods in CIS (5.1)
Omschrijving In this course we will present recent trends in CIS research. We aim to cover the whole breadth of communication research conducted in our program team. Students will get an overview of both themes and research methods; also, they will learn how the results of communication research can be applied in professional practice.

The course consists of seven two-hour lectures. In preparation, students will read one or two research papers and will prepare an assignment on the basis of those papers (formative). During the lectures, these papers will be presented within the larger projects and research interests of the authors and we will discuss the theories and methods used in the research and the practical implications and societal impact of the results. Methods discussed include multimodal analysis, text analysis, corpus analysis, experiments and conversation analysis.

The course - being a choice module in the 2nd or the 3rd year - provides a coherent overview of prevalent methods and theories and integrates the learning trajectories implemented in the CIS program. It builds, amongst others, on the courses Academic Skills 1 and 2 and Quantitative and Qualitative Methods of the first year.
