About this Unit
From 2015 students should take 401080 - Research Protocol Design and Practice. In this unit postgraduate students develop a proposal for a research study in an area of interest, drawing upon their knowledge and experiences from other units in their program of study. Students learn how to apply research methods to a variety of research situations and questions; to understand how research questions are developed and answered empirically through suitable choice of research methodology, design and method; and how research findings are validated and communicated. The unit is taught through self-paced, self-directed learning. Class contact is three days of workshops, in the first and second half of the session.
