Tools of the Trade

Our trade is producing knowledge and implementing it. What are some of the tools that are being used? Choosing the appropriate tool or method for your research is one of the most critical components for advancing academic inquiry. What approaches to research are in the academic's toolbox? Join us for our April FIREtalk and share with an interdisciplinary audience how a tool or method is used in your field:

  • interdisciplinary perspectives
  • mixed methods designs
  • meta-analysis strategies
  • cutting edge technology
