Synopsis

This unit will provide students with an opportunity to conduct a research project related to their workplace or community. Under academic supervision, the project will involve negotiated outcomes between the student, the university and particular organisation/s and/or communities involved. Students will be expected to have worked through some of the issues related to their proposed methodology in the course of completing the pre-requisite research methodology unit, especially the requirement for ethics approval for research involving humans. The aim of the unit is to produce a high quality, practice focused and reflective research report relevant to the focus of their degree.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to demonstrate: skills and knowledge in initiating and conducting independent research under supervision; an appreciation of, and a commitment to ethical research; advanced critical thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills; advanced written skills through the presentation of a 9000 word research project; skills and knowledge in reviewing a specific body of research, and command of that literature; and skills and knowledge in critically examining a key issue or issues relevant to the focus of their degree.

Assessment

Written work: 100% (9000 words)

Contact hours

Students will engage in supervision fortnightly. This may be conducted electronically on-line, via the telephone, video-conferencing, or face to face, depending on the location of the student.
