This session will comprise an interactive discussion regarding: basic principles of social science research; commonly used quantitative, qualitative and mixed-methods; preparation of research proposals generally and examples of guidelines for public and private sector funding agencies; approaches to seeking funding for grants; evidence-based mentoring methods and faculty responsibility for mentoring of students; collaborative, interdisciplinary engagement in research: cross-campus and beyond; issues related to international research; and an introduction to responsible science.

The presenters will make individual and collective presentations, provide a packet of relevant documents, and engage in discussion with the participants. They will also have small group discussions during which participants will be invited to discuss: their ideas for research studies and receive guidance regarding preparation of research proposals; their experience with mentoring and receive guidance regarding strengthening their mentoring capacity; and discuss issues related to responsible science, including bioethics (e.g., protection of human subjects), publication/presentation of findings (e.g., adherence to international guidelines), and research integrity (e.g., plagiarism and validity of results). The questions raised and responses provide during the small group discussions will be documented and presented to the full group of participants to engage in a broader discussion. This discussion will be documented and a set of questions and answers provided to participants within a month of the TLISI session.
