Designing a Research Project - HSBH3024

Year - 2019

Doing research is an exciting exploration of investigating problems and answering questions. By walking through the research design, this unit of study teaches students the foundation principles of writing a research proposal. Students will develop and plan their own research topic from ethics through to the actual proposal, an important process in the methodology of research. Students will be taught the importance of why we need research and how to do research with integrity. Knowledge translation from research to application will also be explored

1 x 2-hr workshop, and 1x1-hr online and practical activities/week
