Faculty & College
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.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
identify conceptual, methodological, and analytical principles related to designing and conducting culturally appropriate and ethically sound research
evaluate various research designs, methodologies, and analytical approaches to make informed and culturally sensitive decisions
co-design, conduct, and analyse a methodologically and ethically sound study to answer a real-world research question
appropriately communicate the study and its findings using appropriate conventions
