HLSC41-141: Research Preparation and Design


This subject is designed to provide the framework and skills necessary for Honours students to successfully commence a research project in the Health Sciences. Students will work closely with the Honours convenor and individual project supervisors to develop their research topic, formulate their aims and hypotheses and consider the significance of the project. Workshops will enable students to search for and retrieve, interpret and begin to critically evaluate the relevant literature in their field. Research ethics processes will be discussed and debated, and students will be assisted to complete ethics applications where appropriate for their study. Students will also review various research design strategies and identify appropriate methods for conducting their project and analysing their expected data. Finally, students will be supported to prepare and present a detailed research proposal to the Faculty.
