It takes into account theories that assist in the construction of meaning for data
from Indigenous contexts. Students are taught to systematically code and create themes
from data sources such as interviews, focus groups and document analysis. They are
also shown how to write qualitatively in an analytical style. Students will also be
introduced to issues through online learning including the discussion board, e-mail
and online reading materials. Therefore it is essential that students have access
to the World Wide Web to complete this subject, students who do not have access to
the internet should notify the subject coordinator.
