Music Education Research Methods 2 - MUED5016

Year - 2020

This unit of study consolidates and extends skills acquired in Research Methods 1. The first objective is to acquaint students with a variety of data analysis procedures employed in music education research. Evolving skills will be extended through practical tasks in which students examine and apply a range of data analysis procedures. A further objective is the completion of a research proposal. Through ongoing reading and critical evaluation of related research literature, students will prepare a research proposal for implementation in the final year of the program. Ethical issues in music education research are an adjunct area of study, and students will submit all documentation required for ethics approval for their proposed research.
