Research and Practice (Lecture 1)

We have to think about a research topic and the research process as well. Finally we come up with three presentation methods.

Discuss a topic → What is it about? → How to present?

Topic: How the social media change people’s life? (the way to connect with people, how to get information)

Research Process: questionnaire, readings (books, journals), interview (focus group), search online

Presentation Methods: video (short film)/ magazine/ PPT → These are three possible methods, but we think that we need to depend on our research result to decide which method we are going to use.
