This workbook takes the student on a conceptual journey aiding their understanding of what is meant by the quantitative-qualitative research process in contemporary legal empirical research. Although, of interest to social science students, the particular worked examples relate to how to do research on law, legal policy and review.

What do we mean by the quantitative-qualitative research process in contemporary legal empirical research? When we conduct research using experimental designs, engage with survey data, or build secondary data sets, there are often questions unanswered by quantitative data only. In legal empirical research it is particularly advised to qualitatively validate any quantitative measures because participants are qualitative end-users of the law. This workbook shows students and postdoctoral researchers, new to legal empirical research, how to work with such mixed methods. The workbook engages in discussions of the following: Experimental design-manipulation; Quasi-experimental design; Cross-sectional design; Longitudinal design; and Case study design. Although, of interest to social science students, the particular worked examples relate to how to do research on law, legal policy and review.
This OER provides teaching and learning material in technologies applied to sustainability and resilience system design solutions, in particular, electronics prototypes involving sensors and actuators.
This lecture presents students, and professionals who are training in crime statistics reporting, with a concrete tutorial in how to critically evaluate government crime statistics with reference to public data collected from public surveys on their recounted experiences of crime.
This lecture addresses core issues in choosing a research topic for undergraduate and first time researchers to consider. Often final year undergraduate students find this task a difficult one. Step by step the the lecture connects the student to core concepts, pressure points and key readings to foster their idea and focus their decision.
