Abstract

One of the most difficult things to present in a social research methods class is the "construction of the research Object". This essay is the result of a series of reflections on how best to deal with the subject: 1) what is the pedagogical objective of training in research methods?; 2) from where does this Object emerge?; 3) what is a research Object?; 4) how does one define the research Object that one wants to build?; 5) what role does this Object play in our research process?; and 6) what is the constructed Object?. This presentation reviews the way in which we are currently broaching the issue and the reasoning behind it. Finally, we present additional questions suggested by our initial reflections.

Keywords: Research Object, pedagogy, methodology, teaching
