About this Unit
This unit is designed for high-achieving students who may be enrolled in Advanced degrees, or the Bachelor of Applied Leadership and Critical Thinking. Narrative inquiry and story-telling is growing in popularity across disciplines as a way of collecting, analysing and presenting complex data. Students will be challenged by the complexity of narrative sense-making and the relationship between personal and cultural narratives (as well as counter-narratives). By following the research journey rather than only the ‘outcomes’ we can learn from mistakes in the research process and find solutions to real world problems. This unit prepares students with the interdisciplinary research skills needed for the careers of tomorrow.
