This module builds on the student’s understanding of the epistemological and ontological foundations of research and development. This module applies this knowledge in the context of doing research and development work and includes the requirements needed for research and development from planning to delivery. It will also help to develop the necessary knowledge and skills needed for research and development governance. Research methodologies will be explored that enable research questions to be answered. The module will facilitate students to participate in exploring and understanding different methods and identifying the strengths and weaknesses inherent in these methods. Assessment is by coursework.
