what research is not
what RESEARCH is not…
  • research is not mere info gathering
  • research is not mere transportation of facts from one location to another
  • research is not merely rummaging for information
research is
  • research originates with a question or a problem
  • research requires the clear articulation of a goal
  • research requires a specific PLANfor proceeding
  • research usually divided the principal problem into more manageable sub-problems
  • research is guided by the specific research problem, question, or hypothesis
  • research accepts certain critical assumptions
  • research requires the COLLECTION & INTERPRETATION of data in and attempt to resolve the problem
  • research is, by its nature, cyclical.
context ….
  • media INDUSTRIES - link to this notion
    • creative class (reading: Richard Florida)
    • the notion of the Creative industries is a recent one (massive research center in Queensland)
  • Research needs to be relevant & engage directly with INDUSTRY issues.
yet there is more
& yet there is more …
  • we want to extend an INVITATION …. to consider media and content production from a different point of view ….
    • one that more and more companies are engaging in
    • where there appears to be ‘real’ job growth and potential …
    • because of recent world events and how YOU have to think through these ramifications in terms of your career &
    • because it is IMPORTANT!
media as a tool …

for ‘transformation’

for good instead of evil

for change instead of status-quo
