Education Honours Dissertation (EDUF4021)


In this unit, students undertake a research project, developed as part of EDUF4020, under the supervision of an academic member of staff, and possibly as part of a research team. In undertaking the research project, students will be required to demonstrate a breadth and depth of knowledge of the discipline studied, autonomy and imagination in applying that knowledge, proficiency and skill in the research methods used and a critical and insightful analysis of the results. They will also be required to demonstrate an understanding of relevant ethical issues. Under the direction of their supervisor, students will develop a research report for examination and dissemination to the wider research field.
