Course modules

Educational and social research and enquiry; design strategies in educational and social research; data collection in educational and social research; data analysis in educational and social research.

Assessment methods

Formative assessment tasks within each module unit provide individual and group activities which ground the summative assignment work.

Each module is summatively assessed by an assignment of 3,000 to 4,000 words.
