Anti-requisite(s): 013228 Research Practices AND 013952 Research Perspectives


This subject provides students with specialised knowledge to underpin research in connection with their professional practice. Students integrate understanding of the philosophical underpinnings of research with issues arising in their chosen area of practice. Through critical analysis and synthesis of independently identified research literature, students apply their new knowledge to develop and articulate a practice-relevant research agenda. Students focus on an aspect of their own professional practice, an issue of strategic importance to their institution or organisation, or explore challenges within a chosen profession and/or its interface with society.

This subject emphasises research approaches that have a close connection with practice, and in developing their agenda, students outline a vision for future practices and demonstrate how their proposed research would contribute to desired change.
