Research Issues in the Study of Knowledge and Information Management in Organisations: moving away from obsolete dichotomies!
报告人: Dr Miguel Baptista Nunes, The University of Sheffield, Information School
主持人： 叶鹰 教授
This seminar aims at discussing and exploring the links between traditionally opposing philosophical views of research in Knowledge and Information Management, such as, positivism versus interpretivism research approaches, quantitative versus qualitative research methods and technology focus versus user-centred design of systems. The discussion will lead to the exploration of mixed-methods and their advantages over often artificially perceived purist views.
