Just a start… here are two things that I believe make a good research question:

1) a clearly identified “problem” or issue to address that the researcher is very interested in or passionate about

2) includes clearly defined key concepts – a conceptual framework based in chosen theoretical framework

Using a theoretical framework for my research and academic writing is a new and exciting challenge for me. I really appreciated the video/slide overview presented by Dr. Francois Desjardins, to help me to better understand how my choice of a theoretical framework will help me to articulate a good research question in our various MALAT academic endeavours.


I found the RRU Writing Centre’s guide to “How to write a research question” to be very useful.
