This is the first of two subjects that all Master of Teaching students complete as part of their Capstone experience. Incorporating campus-based lectures and tutorials and online modules, the subject will introduce students to different approaches to teacher-led research and examine the important role of research in enabling educators to transform educational practices. Topics that will be examined include: undertaking ethical teacher research; accessing, gathering and critically analysing evidence from primary and secondary sources; writing up research, and translating research into practice. Together these topic areas will provide students with the confidence, knowledge and skills to plan and carry out their own small-scale investigations for their Capstone project and future professional work.
On completion of this subject, teacher candidates should be able to:
Review of Literature 1,400 words, due mid-semester 40%
