Workshop Name Abstraction in the research process: Understanding conceptual and theoretical frameworks
About Workshop What are the fundamental differences between conceptual and theoretical frameworks? How do we use these constructs in research? In this workshop, we aim to provide clarity and discuss how these essential constructs shape the type and quality of research outcomes.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore and discuss:
• The role of abstraction in academic research and in their own research
• The meanings and purposes of concepts and theories
• The purposes and functions of conceptual and theoretical frameworks
• The key differences between these frameworks

Participants may join via Zoom.
