SL3200 - Speech Pathology Professional Honours Project A
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
This subject supports students working in small self-directed groups, in developing
knowledge and skills in the conceptualisation, design, and planning of a group research
project. Students will consolidate their skills as critical consumers of research
literature through searching and appraising relevant literature regarding a contemporary
speech pathology issue. Students will then use the findings as a foundation on which
to design and develop a research project, and construct and defend a research proposal.
Students will be required to demonstrate skills in independence, leadership, team
work, planning, and critical reflection.
- Identify and refine a research topic relevant to contemporary speech pathology 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, communicate, and defend a comprehensive proposal justifying the rationale
for underpinning methodology, data collection and analysis processes, and practical
and ethical dimensions of a contemporary research topic;
- Critically evaluate and reflect on ones' own and group members' performance in relation
to research project planning and reporting.
