This subject supports students to learn, apply and document design research methodologies to build a strong theoretical approach to their major project. Through a combination of lectures, tutorials and mentoring with discipline experts, students are introduced to foundational research skills and to research methodologies and methods most relevant to their field of practice. Students apply this knowledge to establish a thorough and critical research foundation for their project and document their findings in a research paper. Students are introduced to techniques to search and analyse relevant literature, analyse design precedents, develop clear research questions, identify the significance of their project, develop an ethical approach to research and apply academic conventions in the documentation of findings.
