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 research texts are constructed by assumptions about knowledge, values and the nature of reality, and through research approaches to data collection and analysis. With a focus on case studies and research articles, the subject engages with a variety of quantitative and qualitative research approaches to develop skills in understanding research and how it is used and adapted into new contexts. The subject encourages students to explore and critically reflect on their own perspectives on knowledge and how they might act as an ethical researcher.
