Advanced Design Research Methods - DECO3008

Year - 2020

This unit aims to provide an overview of research methods used in design and user research. This unit provides instruction on how to write and develop research proposals as well as how to implement a research strategy. This is a seminar unit of study in which the academic staff in design computing will present their research projects, discuss their methods and provide feedback on student's proposed research projects. The students will be taught how to prepare a preliminary research project proposal and be introduced to some of the research methods used in design computing. At the conclusion of the unit a preliminary research proposal will demonstrate the student's ability to identify a research area and implement a research plan.
