There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject prepares students for their honours projects by focusing on research methods in a creative practice context. Through a combination of lectures, seminars and self-directed modules, it consolidates research methods studied in the undergraduate design degree. Students learn the distinction between methodology and methods and, in doing so, develop their approach to design research. Students are introduced to a spectrum of research questions to guide their projects. They learn to articulate their research approach through the genre of abstract writing, and they make a theoretical and methodological commitment to their design project.
