Research design for Experimental Linguists - Uil OTS

This course is essential for experimental linguists. In this course you will learn about important aspects of a quantitative study design (research methodology), the basics of statistical (hypothesis) testing, and how methodology and statistics relate to each other. This discussion-based course will teach you to make funded decisions throughout the research process, and consequently conduct better research with valid and reliable outcomes.

The focus of this course is mainly on research methodology, which is the foundation of a scientific study. This starts with a research question. Formulating a research question and other important steps in the research process will be discussed and practiced in interactive (group) exercises. Next to methodological issues, statistical concepts like probability, hypothesis testing and power will be discussed. Last but not least, some basic statistical tests will be discussed. On the last day everything is put together in a class exercise.
