Description

Marketing educators who teach research-based courses face several challenges in the designing and teaching of analytical-based group projects. The “ideal” research project contains all the elements of the research process as shown in Figure 1 (Neuman 2009, Zeis, Shah, Regassa, & Ahmadian 2001). Fewer pedagogical limitations would exist, such as a limited 16-week semester and time constraints relating to selecting a topic, survey development and distribution, institutional review board approvals, and of course data collection to name a few.
