Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The aim of this distance- learning online module is to provide students with a foundation training in research methods in education. It is designed to meet the needs of home and international students who seek to enhance their learning experience with research methods in education. The module has two main ambitions. The first is concerned with enabling students to engage in understanding, designing and implementing research accounts. The second is concerned with equipping students with basic skills in a range of established research strategies and techniques, including data collection and analysis. This is intended to enable students to frame and refine research questions, to design and execute a mini research project and disseminate its findings, appropriate to their own research interests. This module can be taken as a ‘stand alone’ (which can lead to a post-graduate award) or as a part of a Masters or a PhD degree. This is a 30 CATs module consisting of 12 units (eg, Survey Research and Questionnaire Construction) which will approximately take 12 weeks to complete. Each self- study unit consists of sections where relevant content and activities are included for students to complete. A number of links with useful resources, reading lists and other pertinent material are included to help students learn about the topics being covered.
