Micro-Organizational Research Methods (MORS-426-1)
This course provides an introduction to research designs and methods for “micro” research in organizations. The purpose to develop students’ skill at designing, executing, interpreting, and evaluating micro-organizational and social psychological research. The course addresses both theoretical and practical considerations of research methods, with a special focus on the role of laboratory experiments and other common methods in social psychology for organizational research. The class covers fundamental theoretical considerations, such as utility and limitations of experimentation, what constitutes a sufficient test of a theory, the meaning and significance of effects, statistical interpretation, and the social contextualization of the research process. A large proportion of the class is spent on practical considerations in generating testable hypotheses, designing experiments, and evaluating empirical research.
