Department permission is required to enrol in Education Exchange (EDUF4553) in either semester.

Reading and Designing Research (EDUF4044) is offered in Semester Two, and is compulsory for most BEd students who are not undertaking honours.

Teachers and education workers should not only be aware of, and know how to analyse research done by others that may affect their own practice, but should also be able to design their own small-scale research projects to solve educational problems or positively adapt their practices.

The unit concentrates on developing skills such as framing a research question, searching academic literature, writing a literature review, developing a research methodology, and understanding the "truth claims" that might be made from research done by using different methods and methodologies.
