Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the role of research in guiding policy and practice

2. Demonstrate research planning, implementation and analysis skills

3. Demonstrate conceptual level understanding of their chosen workplace or industry problem.


The specific content of the course will be a function of individual student topic selection. Nevertheless, the final written report will need to meet requirements of a report for that area of education (eg educational psychology, social foundations, special education) in terms of comprehensiveness of literature reviewed, and quality of both methodology and discussion of implications/recommendations.
