About this Unit
This unit is designed to extend students’ capacity to undertake critical and creative research in the arts therapies. Students will have the opportunity to work together and extend each other’s work while undertaking a small research project that does not involve human research subjects. The theories and ethics of difference and diversity will be central to the process of enquiry. This includes formulation of research questions or problems, the choice and articulation of appropriate methodologies; data gathering and analysis; and the preparation of a research report. Students will learn to systematically question the dominant assumptions of their field and generate alternatives to a tendency for practitioner research to reproduce ‘the same’.
