Postgraduate Conference 2016: Research Methodologies
As scholars we are dependent upon the strength and appropriate use of research methods to qualify and underpin our research enquiry and data. As the research environment becomes more complex to respond to the drive for larger scale studies and collaborative research with other academics and external partners, must the design and use of research methods consider new parameters and dynamics in response to these demands? As a result, this conference focused on the design and use of research methodologies in new contexts and the postgraduate work showcased explored this theme.
The University of Lincoln is part of the East Midlands Doctoral Network (EMDoc), which consists of nine universities within the East Midlands region, together we are united in our missions to share best practice, resources and insights into postgraduate research, as well as providing opportunities for collaboration and networking amongst the organisations’ students.
Every year EMDoc provides the opportunity for students from all organisations to participate and attend an EMDoc conference.
