Module overview

This module aims to develop your knowledge and understanding of research methods in education and psychology. Working from research questions that might inform your future dissertation, the module builds on those in Part 1. You will cover fundamentals of a good research design and data collection and analysis, including both qualitative and quantitative techniques, with the research question always being central. There will be a clear emphasis on collecting and analysing your own data and on reporting your findings in American Psychological Association (APA) format. The module will cover the steps necessary to prepare for your dissertation project. You will be encouraged to be critical and analytical. You will work independently and collaboratively and will benefit from feedback from both your tutors and your peers.
