This subject is designed to develop the competencies necessary to plan and conduct fieldwork for an Honours thesis. It also aims to develop the knowledge and skills required to develop and critique research proposals, plans and outcomes. This includes scoping how much and what type of data collection is possible and over what period of time. Students are supported to prepare an ethics application. This requires learning about the potential risks and harm that can arise from research; strategies that can be deployed to minimise risk and harm; the collection, storage and use of data to ensure privacy; conflict of interest and gaining consent.
