04 Across the Fields
Nature of
What is
Research is a “Systematic Investigation” design
to extend the knowledge of what is already
known of the physical, biological, or social world
and research can be creative, exploring or just
reassuring in nature.
Information to prove the accuracy or
truthfulness of your claims or conclusion about
the topic of your research.
A tool for global solution to man’s problem.
An endeavour to expand understanding of
different situations and giving positive answers to
certain questions.
What is Inquiry in
Inquiry?is a dynamic process of being open to
wonder and puzzlement and coming to know and
understand the world. As such, it is a stance that
pervades all aspects of life and is essential to the way
in which knowledge is created. Inquiry is based on the
belief that understanding is constructed in the process
of people working and conversing together as they
pose and solve the problems, make discoveries and
rigorously testing the discoveries that arise in the
course of shared activity.

Inquiry is the process of finding answers to

Inquiry is a study into a worthy question,
issue, problem or idea. It is the authentic,
real work that that someone in the
community might tackle.
Inquiry is a complex process of
constructing personal meaning, applying
critical thinking skills, solving problems,
creating understanding, and questioning.
The important part of inquiry is that
questions are being asked, solutions are
being explored, problems are being tackled,
and answers are being shared in the most
appropriate form.
Importance of
Research in
Daily Life
Its describes what is happening around us and
to open up our mind in our surroundings.
through this, we get to know what people think,
what people feel, and what people doing.
Its explain why things happen in certain ways.
through this we understand different situations
in our lives and help s identify.
Its predict what will happen. Through his, we
got to caution ourselves in doing or not doing
Its evaluate what happen in our lives, to face
our reality.
Research is important because it helps us to
solve our problems. Its provides us relevant data
our own opinion
The Characteristics,
and Ethics

-gives correct or accurate data.
-deals with facts not opinion
-fresh, new and interesting to the present society
-instrumental in improving society or in solving

Quantitative Research
Quantitative research is
inquiry into an identified
problem, based on testing a
theory, measured with numbers,
and analyzed using statistical
techniques. The goal of
quantitative methods is to
determine whether the
predictive generalizations of a
theory hold true.
Qualitative Research
A study based upon a qualitative
process of inquiry has the goal of
understanding a social or human
problem from multiple
perspectives. Qualitative research is
conducted in a natural setting and
involves a process of building a
complex and holistic picture of the
phenomenon of interest.
The Kinds
Specific to field of study
Graduate students learn about research
methods used in their particular field of
study. Whatever methods are used, there are
many resources to support research, and any
number of variations to the basic
methods. Choose a method or variation that
is manageable in your first years as a new
faculty member to be certain to get your
research agenda underway. Often the
biggest challenge is often to get started, so
establish research priorities early on, and
create a plan to implement them.
The quantitative / qualitative
These two forms of research, in spite of
the differences delineated above, have
many things in common. They do,
however, offer different perspectives on a
subject under study. As a result, some
researchers are utilizing some combination
of the two methods that both offer a
quantifiable look and a more holistic
picture of a phenomenon. The research
question will ultimately determine what
methods are best employed.
 As new faculty members, be open
to looking at problems in
different ways, or even
collaborating with faculty who
may offer a different perspective
on the same issue. Be aware of
expectations in your department,
college and field of study to be
certain the research undertaken is
acceptable for progress toward
Collaborative research
There are many ways to
collaborate and thereby enrich your
work as a faculty member. Multiple
perspectives offer a more complete
view of an issue under study.
Whether presenting or publishing,
having several iterations of a study
in different settings offers a means
of validating findings.
Collaboration may take many
forms, including crossing
disciplines, types of institutions,
or engaging the community
outside the campus
environment. Explore the ways
that collaboration may enrich
your research. Some of the
issues and challenges associated
with collaborative research are
explored in this section.
Simple definitions of practitioner
research address the investigator, the
setting and the purpose.
Practitioner research by its nature offers
practitioners a voice in the research
conversation. Some consider it a bridge of
sorts between theory and practice,
although practitioners claim a rightful
place in the research continuum. Some of
the issues and challenges associated with
practitioner research are explored in this
