This subject introduces students to a variety of research methods used in a range of fields and provides fundamental knowledge that they need to make rational decisions about research strategies. The subject introduces research methods such as experimental, quasi-experimental, case studies and surveys. Further, it explores ethical constraints, codes of ethics and requirements for gaining ethical approval. A range of research strategies will be introduced through a critical examination of exemplar studies and examining the relationship between research questions and methods of collecting and analysing quantitative and qualitative data. Students will be given guidance in developing researchable questions, writing research proposals and reports and conducting literature reviews. They will also be introduced to basic statistical analyses of data.
