This course is designed to train students how to conduct a literature review, how to summarize the information from the review, how to identify the gaps in the available information, and how to propose a study to fill one of the apparent gaps. This course combines classroom sessions, webinars, and individual synchronous tutorials with substantial individual work to create a proposal ready for submission for funding. Students will be taught how to perform each step and will be expected to apply it to a topic they have chosen for this one semester course. They will get feedback at each stage in the process. Faculty will oversee the selection, scope and mentoring for a thesis project. The final deliverable for the course will be a proposal for a research study.
