Co-requisites: EDU203

Aims/Description: This module explores a range of methodologies, methods and styles of re-presentation and reporting that are used in educational research. It also examines a number of important philosophical, practical and ethical issues, including: the inherently social nature of research; the moral responsibility researchers bear; approaches to qualitative and quantitative data analysis; and the influence of researchers' beliefs and values on the research that they do. The aim of this module is to equip students with the skills, knowledge and awareness needed to critically engage with a range of research publications and to conduct research of their own.
