This one-week intensive subject is designed to provide students with a framework and skills necessary for planning and managing health research projects. Students will undertake a series of workshops which will enable them to search for, retrieve, interpret and critically appraise research literature. Additionally, students will develop knowledge and skills relevant to writing a research protocol and ethics application using a variety of design strategies including quantitative, qualitative and/or mixed methods. Finally, students will learn a variety of methods for analysing data relevant to health, development, learning or performance.
