In the Fall semester of 2015, while I was an associate professor at Concordia University, Montreal, ICT University invited me to give a series of online guest lectures as part of their doctoral student course on how to carry out a literature review. ICT University is based in Yaoundé, Cameroun and Baton Rouge, USA. Its programs focus primarily on information and communication technologies and on management.
I recorded most of the lectures and now I have edited them to be suitable for a more general audience. Although the lectures were given in the context of a specific course, these edited videos should be suitable for any researcher or graduate student who would like to learn how to develop theory using literature reviews.
This first video is the overview to the course that I presented to the ICT University students. It provides a general introduction to literature reviews and the idea of developing theory using literature reviews.
Here's the course outline: http://chitu.okoli.org/media/pro/teach/ictu-lit/ICTU_Lit_review_syllabus_Fall_2015.docx
Here are the two articles I refer to:
* Theory-mining reviews: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2699362
* Tutorial on systematic literature reviews: http://chitu.okoli.org/pub/okoli-2015-a-guide-to-conducting-a-standalone-systematic-literature-review/
