Equips students to critically examine the literature in their agreed area for identification of research opportunities. Students are supported in their development of skills in critical reading, thinking and analysis; perspective and impact; context, purpose and the function of texts. The unit will also enable students to manage the demands of locating, synthesising/analysing and using various texts to develop competence in academic writing, in order to prepare for their thesis-based literature review. This is a continuing unit. Students will extend on their knowledge as they work towards completion of the final grade awarded in On the Shoulders of Giants: Critically Examining the Literature in Education Part 2.
