This unit assists students undertaking the Honours program in Social Work to further develop understanding of the role that research plays in social work practice and to develop knowledge, understanding and skills to both use and undertake research. The aim of the unit is to prepare students to undertake supervised research on an existing research project. The unit is offered during the 3rd year of the BSW degree program, concurrently with the first field education placement. Entry into the program is competitive, and the Honours stream is demanding. In effect, students are reading and learning in two, interwoven streams, as they participate in classes where a range of issues in research method are discussed, while also reading and discussing materials related to their supervised research project. A significant commitment of time to reading and writing is expected.
