Teaching Research Methods to International Students: Examining the practical and cross-cultural implications




International students are a major segment of the student population of Higher Education in the UK and elsewhere. They are often tasked with conducting research within their respective disciplines. Therefore, it is essential for Business School academics to be aware of the unique challenges associated with teaching research methods to this demographic. Of particular importance is teaching international students how to safely conduct sound, ethical research that has potential implications not only within the UK, but also across their various nations. Questions therefore arise around not only quality assurance within international research outputs, but also managing or supervising research students who may be conducting portions of their research outside the UK. Discussion around this subject area is essential if we are to attempt to remove the institutional roadblocks that may currently prevent international students from contributing to and producing global research. This event proposes to tackle the cross-disciplinary and systematic concerns of teaching research methods to international students by showing how we can create a culture that encourages outputs that are truly representative of the diverse nature of the world, encompassing developed and emerging nations. These concerns will be addressed in a practical manner with room for discussion.

This workshop, therefore, draws on the insight of experienced scholars to address pressing issues arising from teaching international students to conduct research.

Some of the proposed topic areas include:

1. Conducting interdisciplinary research
2. Paradigms in research
3. Digital advances in research
4. Cross-cultural applications in teaching research methods
5. Conducting research with international students
6. Issues relating to gaining ethics approval for international research projects
7. Issues associated with raising funding for international research projects
