Anti-requisite(s): 013952 Research Perspectives AND 015126 Research Approaches



The purpose of this subject is to develop research-literate students who understand different research approaches, are critical readers of research, and who are able to develop ideas about potential research problems applied in the language studies field. The subject explores how academic and non-academic research texts are constructed by assumptions about knowledge, values and the nature of reality, and through research approaches to data collection and analysis. By using case studies, the subject engages with a series of research approaches: qualitative (including discourse analysis) and quantitative, with a focus on developing research literacy skills. The subject encourages students to explore and critically reflect on their own perspectives on knowledge.
