This course is the first of a three-course research sequence. It provides an introduction to the research process. Students will obtain a basic understanding of theory-based research, methodological considerations in the design of research, ways of evaluating practice, and approaches to analyzing data. Examples of qualitative and quantitative designs will be analyzed, and techniques of data analysis examined. Learning will occur through lectures, class discussions, readings, and assignments. Knowledge gained through this course can be used in the evaluation of OT services and in designing and implementing beginning-level research projects. The basic concepts of evidence-based practice will be presented.
