About this Unit
From Spring 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301291 - Design Research Methods (Advanced).  Design and user research methods are critical in establishing frameworks for efficient and effective process and resource utilisation in designing, conducting and presenting research findings leading to design briefs that are succinct yet open to new innovations. A range of research design methods are presented and students are guided to the strategic selection of methods appropriate to their own self-sourced project theme. Data collection instruments are designed, operationalised, data coded and analysed via both qualitative and quantitative techniques and discussed in a vibrant peer environment inspired by design thinking and other research methods unique to the design profession.
