Subject Overview:

An introduction to the ethics of human research and the application of research to the early childhood field. The research process will be examined with the view to developing a research project suitable for independent investigation. Students will implement a research project with guidance from a lecturer with expertise in the selected area. Students will be required to demonstrate an ability to work independently in a concentrated way over an extended period. The topic for research will be drawn from the major strands of the degree program and may reflect issues in child development, curriculum theory and practice or management and leadership issues concerning the role of the early childhood professional. Students will identify an aspect of research and undertake a literature review with the view to developing a research question and choosing an appropriate research methodology. Students will then collect and analyse data using appropriate quantitative or qualitative methods and present a research report in which they demonstrate the ability to interpret and discuss their findings.
