20 cp Prerequisite EDFD705 Research Problem Exploration in Context
This unit engages candidates, in consultation with their supervisors, in identifying the appropriate literature. From the concepts embedded in the problem articulation and by synthesising the relevant literature, the candidate generates a conceptual framework. This allows the candidate to use the literature to illuminate suitably an understanding of the problem as well as, where appropriate, to generate defensibly the research questions. The product represents a complex re conceptualisation of the substantive knowledge matrix embedded in nurturing a sophisticated appreciation of the research problem and purpose.
