This course aims to enable students to conceptualise, implement and report on a self-guided and independent effort of research or analysis. In the first part of the course, students will develop a proposal for a project they want to carry out on the basis of a given research topic or a case study. In the second part of the course, students will carry out the agreed project and prepare a report on this effort in which they demonstrate their ability to critically survey, appreciate and reflect on relevant theories, models or practices and then employ these to make recommendations for problem solutions.
By the end of the course, a successful student should be able to
1 Demonstrate deep and critical understanding of a given topic
or area of enquiry as well as the relevant bodies of knowledge and practice
2 Critically survey and appraise relevant theories, models or practices using appropriate analytical tools and/or electronic data bases.
3 Select appropriate methods to generate primary research findings or analyse data from secondary data.
