About Course

Research Methods or Research Methodology is one of the common courses in most institution of higher learning. This is because both undergraduate and postgraduate students need to develop skills and competencies of conducting research so that they can find solutions to societal problems. Research is the only credible source of valid data that can help in decision making.

In her many years of teaching and mentoring students, Dr. Lydiah Wambugu has observed that Research Methods is one of the units with the highest failure rate in the examinations. This observation may be explained by either majority of the lecturers who teach Research Methods do so in a very abstract manner and do not break down the concept of research in ways that students can easily understand or students find research methods difficult because they are not able to link theory and practice. It is for this reason that Dr. Wambugu has developed this course from the simple concepts to the more complex concepts in research.

The beauty with this course is that the content is organized in lectures and each lecture builds on one another. The content is explained in a learner friendly language for ease of understanding. Whether you are undergraduate or postgraduate student, I believe that you will find this course quite useful as you go through the research methods course

I will not bore you 🙂
I take my courses very seriously but at the same time I try to make it fun since I know how difficult learning from an instructor with a monotone voice or boring attitude is. This course is fun, and when you need some energy to keep going, you will get it from me.

My Approach
Practice, practice and more practice. Every section inside this course has a practice lecture at the end, reinforcing everything with went over in the lectures. I also created a small application the you will be able to download to help you practice PHP. To top it off, we will build and awesome CMS like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal.
