Design Research Methods (6511QCA)

Excellence in practice is predicated on a reflective and rigorous approach to design practice as a method of inquiry and comment. This course introduces students to a number of exemplarily research practices through which they may contextualise their work. It looks at different modes of inquiry and encourages students to develop research practices that are appropriate to their particular area of study. This course provides an opportunity for students to explore the basic principles of research methods and consider how these may be applied to their research project. Students will identify their topic/research question and appropriate methods of inquiry through peer review, students will present their research topic, investigations and work-in-progress for scholarly interrogation.
