Who is the course intended for?

The course is for anyone who is interested in doing organisational research in ways that are more empowering for research participants and researchers. It is likely to be of interest to PhD, DBA and Masters students who are doing a research project or dissertation in management, or studying organisations in other social science disciplines.

The course is authored by a team including management and organisational studies researchers at The Open University and the University of Delhi (India) and includes contributions from researchers in other social science disciplines, such as sociology and media studies. Some contributors to this course have extensive experience of doing management and organisational research in India, the UK and the rest of the world, while others are early career researchers. By involving researchers with varying degrees of expertise and experience, who will share their research practices, it is envisaged that you will be able to learn about the messy, lived experience of doing empowering research.
