This presentation should comprise information about: your area of investigation, one or two purpose statements describing the broader aims of your research, main research questions, research design (primarily qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods?), and why you have chosen the design (look in Cresswell & Cresswell chapter 1-5).

Please bring a copy of your self-presentation to the course
