This module is designed to provide students with a critical overview of the main methodologies and designs applied to research within health and social care, professional practice, regulation and policy. It provides students with an opportunity to explore the theoretical dilemmas which underlie the process of inquiry and its relationship to practice. The module will provide a framework within which to select, evaluate and justify the research methods chosen by students for their research project.
The module requires the students to prepare and write a research proposal which will normally lead to a level 4 dissertation. Hence prior knowledge of some research approaches at level 3 is normally expected.
This module is taken by students on a variety of Award pathways. Learning will usually be with a group of students who bring different academic and/or professional interests to their study, thus providing a community of collaborative learning well suited to interdisciplinary exploration.
