Course DescriptionAcross disciplines and professions there is an emphasis on evidence-informed practice and policy. Through an introduction to quantitative and
qualitative research methods, this course develops students’ skills for finding and critically analyzing research evidence to inform change. Students will identify a practice/policy issue of their own interests, find and appraise research evidence, and strategize to mobilize knowledge for change. Course discussions focus on aging and older adults, but the skills are transferable across disciplines.
