About this Unit
This unit provides an opportunity for students to engage with literature on a particular aspect of a research topic and design a research project in a team. Students will: locate and select relevant research literature to investigate a particular research question; analyse key ideas, assumptions and domains of knowledge in the literature around that question; identify appropriate research methods and designs for answering it; critically apply appropriate forms of data collection and data analysis to that research design, and develop research findings into an informed discussion linking to broader academic conversations around the field being researched.
