Aims/Description: In this module, students are supported in planning and implementing a piece of original research, and in writing or producing a dissertation (of 15,000 words in length or equivalent). The research will be empirical, utilize qualitative methods or textual analysis, and focus on something from the students' engagement with the programme, their professional context, or in response to a brief from a creative partner organisation. Links to these organisations will be facilitated by the School, and it is anticipated that the 'Digital Literacies in Education' module will allow students to start imagining possible projects with external partners.
