5SSES003 Principles and Methods of Social Research (2023)
[Education, Communication and Society, King's College London]
Led two weekly 1.5 hr workshops aimed at developing students' qualitative and quantitative methods through practical/hands-on exercises where students were given the opportunity to try out a large variety of research methods themselves.
Topics covered included: introduction to regressions, using excel and STATA, interviewing, computational methods, web scraping, and ethnographies.
LISS362 - Introduction to Systematic Reviews (2022) & (2023)
[King's College London & Queen Mary University of London]
Designed and led the 8 week module for two years in a row for postgrads and PhD students.
The aim of this module is to provide students with a holistic overview of systematic reviews as well as equip them with the necessary practical skills to conduct their own systematic reviews. The course combines both theoretically and practically driven sessions to ensure students are able to apply the methods learned in the theory sessions.
Feedback from students:
"Thanks, Farida. Your passion in this subject is truly inspiring"
"Once again Thank you for your time and this course has been a real eye-opener for me with my 2nd year progression coming up planning to get at least a high-level systematic review or a rapid review done, and all this time I have only been self-learning just trying things out without knowing the reason/rationale for doing things, and your teachings have been quite useful to bring some perspective and meaning into context! "
"Thank you for your insights and willingness to help. I have just read your informative slides"
"Thanks again for delivering this class which is very useful and informative. I really appreciate it, your approach is very structured and informative, and you also show us the hands-on practice which is very useful. Although there is a difference between the business and management fields where I am from, compared to the typical social science interventions, it's useful for me to have a general understanding."
