Unit of study_

Honours: Research in Music Education 2 - MUED3630

Year - 2020

This unit of study consolidates and extends skills acquired in Honours: Research in Music Education 1. It broadens students' knowledge of a variety of research methods, concepts and research designs which are useful in answering empirical research questions. Evolving skills will be extended through practical tasks in which students examine and apply a range of data analysis procedures. Through ongoing reading and critical evaluation of related research literature, students will prepare a research proposal for implementation in the final year of the Honours program. This will be documented in the form of the first three chapters of a thesis. Ethical issues in music education research are an adjunct area of study and students will submit all documentation required for ethics approval of their proposed research.

2 hour seminar per week or 1 hour individual consultation per week during part of the course.

Initial thesis chapters (50%); ethics documentation (30%); seminar report on research topic (10%); seminar and consultation attendance and participation (10%)
