20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module will focus on introducing students to landscape research in its broadest sense. They will learn how to find sources of information, how to critically review and analyse this information and how to use and present the findings from their research. They will understand the relevance of research to their own project outputs and how research and evidence-based practice can underpin the planning, design and management of the landscape more generally. They will appreciate how research enables them to critically appraise a project and how they can inform, inspire and enrich their own work with the knowledge and insights gained from their research. The module is supported by a series of social and cultural lectures. The module will support students' preparation for their Dissertations, and their final year Special Project work (LSCT123 students only).
