Information Technology Research II
|Course code INFO6102||Units 20||Level 6000||Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Design, Communication and IT|
This course is the final part of Information Technology Research courses commenced in the associated course INFO6101.
It further develops research skills through the completion of a research project. The course is conducted under the supervision of an academic staff member who is the student's research supervisor. By the start of this course, students will have completed a literature review, identified a suitable research question and developed a robust research design. The course develops an Honours research project from the initial drafts to its completion.
Available in 2014
|Objectives||In the course students will:|
1. develop and implement a research plan;
2. where appropriate to the project, collect and analyse data and communicate the results in a meaningful manner;
3. develop critical and analytical skills;
4. develop time management skills appropriate to research at Honours level;
5. develop editing and drafting skills for research projects;
6. discuss research findings using appropriate communication skills;
7. finalise a theoretically, methodologically and technically sophisticated research project appropriate to MIT Honours level.
|Content||The content of the research project will be substantially determined by the student, in that the student will choose, in consultation with the Honours Co-ordinator, the topic of his/her thesis or technical/creative project and on this basis will be allocated a supervisor from within the discipline area. |
The project area will determine the detailed content.
Drafting aspects of the thesis and technical/creative project appropriate to research projects undertaken at Honours level.
Finalising a theoretically, methodologically and technically sophisticated research project.
