|How To Do Meaningful Research?
|September 16, 2023
Dr. Hammad initiated his talk by deconstructing the term “meaningful” in the context of research, shedding light on multiple possible interpretations. He cautioned against an excessive reliance on specific metric-based indicators and the potential dystopian peril of transforming research into a gamified endeavor in the future. Dr. Hammad emphasized that meaningful research should possess qualities such as comprehensibility, validity, relevance, and it should serve as an intellectual pursuit that imparts a sense of genuine worth to those involved in its pursuit.
