Master Supervision - Research Methods

Research Methods Questionnaire for understanding which Research Methods are used in Master Thesis Supervision at our department (Computer Science, Informatica).

Dear Colleague,

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this brief anonymous survey. We are interested in gaining an overview of the research methods employed by our master students during their master graduation projects (VAF and AF in Dutch). At our department, we offer a diverse range of projects in terms of research directions, methods, and topic areas.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather information about your preferred research methods, level of expertise, and objectives while supervising master students during their graduation projects. Additionally, we would like to know how you involve master students and whether you provide them with specific training or guidance on research methods.

By gathering this information, we aim to improve our structured research preparation course (VAF-SE gestructureerd in Dutch) and provide a more relevant and comprehensive review of research methods for our master students. This will empower them to make informed choices and develop the necessary skills to conduct high-quality research.

Participation in this survey is voluntary, and all responses will remain anonymous. Your input is highly valuable, and we encourage you to provide detailed responses to help us gain a comprehensive understanding of the expertise and preferences in the research methods that students apply within our institution.

Thank you for your valuable insights, which will greatly contribute to the success of our master students and the continued advancement of our research programs.
