The primary aim of this unit is to enable students to analyse, interpret, and report research findings at a professional and publishable level. Skills developed in interpreting data analysis can also assist in understanding research papers. While emphasis will be placed on quantitative methods, the use of qualitative approaches will also be discussed and practiced. At the end of this unit students will be expected to have a practical skill set that they can use for their own Honours research (HON455 and HON456) and future projects. Each topic will be discussed and practiced in weekly tutorials alongside a required reading list and video materials.
