What will I learn on this module?

This module will start with a research workshop that will enable those who have had minimal research tuition to have a broad understanding of the basic research principles upon which to build upon for the remainder of the module. For those with previous research instruction, the workshop will serve as a reminder (scaffolding) about the basic research tenants. Students with research experience will be encouraged to support those with less research awareness within a collaborative teaching and learning environment.

On this interactive module you will appreciate the knowledge and skills needed to undertake research. You will learn about research philosophy, methodology and the different methods associated with a range of research traditions.
