This course is an introduction to frameworks for thinking about, reading about, and carrying out research. Students will develop skills in the critical analysis of a wide range of research literature through developing knowledge of ethics, different methodologies, and different types of data. Students are introduced to research practice from both 'Western' and Indigenous knowledge standpoints. The aims of the course are to bring the student to the point where they have the knowledge to interpret most quantitative and qualitative research papers in their field, as well as the background to undertake supervised research.
