This subject develops postgraduate research skills in the School of the Built Environment and is delivered using UTS learning strategies. These include blended learning approaches which combine face-to-face collaborative learning with online learning activities. The subject introduces the academic research process to postgraduate students and equips them with knowledge about the philosophical foundations of social science research, research strategies, research methodology and methods, and research design strategies so that students may successfully undertake postgraduate research for doctoral studies or other smaller research projects and be able to submit research reports.
The subject has two main objectives. The first is to develop understanding and basic skills in the design of empirical research for answering social science and built environment research questions. The second is to foster an ability to critically evaluate the products of empirical research. Using the material covered during the teaching period, students are in a better position to discern good research from bad research, an important skill when so much information about the world (government policy, planning decisions, etc.) is based, at least in part, on empirical research.
