About this Unit
An essential skill required by researchers is the ability to propose research and justify it in a persuasive manner. Through interactive workshops, Researcher Development 2 helps students develop and refine a research proposal. The unit includes workshops on research ethics that will help students articulate the significance and relevance of their work and will assist those requiring ethics clearance. The written proposal is defended through the oral Presentation of Proposal (POP). After successful completion of this unit, students will have demonstrated an ability to design and justify a research project in their discipline.
