Honours: Research in Music Education 2 (MUED3630)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit of study consolidates and extends skills acquired in Honours: Research in Music Education 1. It broadens students' knowledge of a variety of research methods, concepts and research designs which are useful in answering empirical research questions. Evolving skills will be extended through practical tasks in which students examine and apply a range of qualitative and quantitative data analysis procedures. Through ongoing reading and critical evaluation of related research literature, students will prepare a research proposal for implementation in the final semester of the Honours program. This will be documented in the form of the first three chapters of a thesis. Ethical issues in music education research are an adjunct area of study and students will submit all documentation required for ethics approval of their proposed research.
