Moves students through the major tenets of educational theory and research methodology. Students will engage with cutting-edge, conventional and historic theories and methodologies in education and the social sciences. They will examine qualitative, post-qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and how they may be put to work with/through theory. The unit incorporates direct research experience enabling students to work and play with theory and methodology in creative and innovative ways.
- What comes before theory: Playing with the ‘ologies’;
- Playing and working with theorists and theory in education and learning; and
- Paying and working with methodology: Qualitative, post-qualitative and quantitative methodologies.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
