About Sage Research Methods
For several years, the University has made use of the Sage Research Methods database. This database comprises numerous modules and prior to summer 2021 the modules were primarily in written form; journal entries, books and encyclopaedia. For 2021/2022, an enhanced portfolio of over 3,000 additional materials has been made available and encompasses video, datasets and research cases, together with learning activities to test understanding
Educators can call on multimedia and lesson content to assist students to build their research methodology understanding and skills throughout their module activities. Students can explore the realities of research through working with practice datasets and learning from real life research experiences that are featured in the video and cases content. This helps bring the research experience to life in a way that is not possible through the book and journal content.
