|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
Available to level 3 Occupational Therapy students enrolled in the Honours course.
This subject supports students in developing knowledge and skills in the conceptualisation,
design and planning of a research project. Students will consolidate their skills
in searching and appraising relevant academic and/or grey literature in order to undertake
an initial scope of the current knowledge regarding a contemporary occupational therapy
practice issue. They will then use these findings as a foundation on which to design
and develop a research project and construct a research proposal.
- identify and refine a research topic relevant to contemporary occupational therapy
theory and practice;
- critically evaluate relevant literature relating to a contemporary practice issue
in order to contextualise, design and justify a research question;
- examine research methodologies and associated methods, in order to identify a research
approach that aligns effectively with a study question;
- develop and communicate a comprehensive proposal justifying the rationale for, underpinning
methodology, data collection and analysis processes and practical and ethical dimensions
of a contemporary research topic.
