A weekly online seminar that begins to introduce and examine the relationship between research and practice within the context of practice led research. This seminar acquaints students with a range of research methods and research paradigms, key issues and practical skills relevant to the creative arts.
It assists students in refining their research question/proposal and developing a research methodology appropriate to their discipline and project. In the seminar, research skills, techniques and methodologies are demonstrated both by instruction and example.
This subject aims to introduce and provide students with key research concepts and skills relevant to their chosen project, as well as give an overview of contemporary debates and methodological traditions in the field of arts-based research.
The subject will enable students to develop a research methodology appropriate to their discipline and project, train candidates in preparation for research activities involved in higher research degrees, and facilitate discussion of research ethics, including codes of conduct and ethical frameworks governing research.
