Scientific methodology and communication in informatics, 7.5 ECTS. Course responsible: Jeremy Rose (jeremy.rose@his.se
The course is aimed at postgraduate students who need to discuss, plan, execute, report and critically review research results from various studies and from scientific literature. After the course, the student will be able to identify, choose and use research methods that support systematic work and communication for complex research problems where it is often necessary to use a variety of methods. Communication shall be in accordance with the requirements for publication in scientific journals.

Autumn 2018

Scientific theory in informatics, 7.5 ECTS. Course responsible: Jeremy Rose (jeremy.rose@his.se
In this course, the student will receive training in addressing scientific problems in informatics with well-founded arguments. Informatics is a broad field of science, which covers a number of subdisciplines. The course covers a wide range of key scientific theories within the subdisciplines that are included in the University's definition of information technology. The student also gets the opportunity to immerse himself in a certain theory based on his own interest. In addition, oral proficiency in English is trained by presenting and discussing relevant theories.

Scientific workshop in informatics I, 5 ECTS. Course responsible: Alan Said (alan.said@his.se) and Masood Fathi (masood.fathi@his.se)
Within the course, current research questions and research findings are analyzed and discussed. The course also trains the research student to present research and to provide constructive feedback to other people's research work.

Research ethics, 5 ECTS. Course responsible: Oskar MacGregor (oskar.macgregor@his.se
What are we allowed to, ethically speaking, do as part of our research? What kind of research is directly prohibited and what type is controlled and limited in any way? We can have a general idea of the answers to these questions, but for postgraduate students there may still be many question marks. The course examines practical and theoretical ethical frameworks for research, to begin answering these questions, thus clarifying what a researcher's ethical rights and responsibilities actually are.
