Research methodology is usually taught theoretically, so my students approached it pragmatically: They chose a topic that they were passionate about and I only accompanied them in the process of preparing their research work, timely guiding the way forward.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The students will present the process they went through when researching for the project:
1. How to start? Choosing a plausible subject.
2. The problem: narrowing down the subject.
3. Writing the research question, hypothesis, and objectives.
4. Relevance: why is this important and how is it innovative?
5. Digging in: theoretical foundations to support the analysis.
6. Research step by step: describing the analysis methods.
7. Everything to prove: analysis and conclusions.
8. Performing skills: the art of selling your research.
All of the above will be explained by the students on the basis of their own research product: "Impact of injuries on the NFL as an industry, the economic sector and the lives of athletes" (Carlos Montaño & Andres Serio), "Analysis of the viability of human life on Mars from a biological adaptation perspective, as a source of impulse and sustainability for the future of space colonization" (Andreina Sananez & Amanda Wanderkoke)
