Research method content exists on a Wikiversity site:
There are no other specific required texts or readings.
There are no recommended texts although the University library has a wide range of resources likely to cover the student's research topic as well as research methodology. The LearnOnline (Canvas) site as well as tutorials are often used to direct students towards useful resources.
Honours is generally fulltime over two semesters (9 months). Honours is a full-time 35 hour per week commitment or part-time equivalent. The general expectation is that Honours candidates will have normal work hours (9am to 5pm every week day) although project demands may require time outside these hours and negotiation may be sought with the supervisor(s).
This unit contains participatory elements which are vital to the learning outcomes of this unit, for yourself and other students. Except in the case of extenuating circumstances 100% participation is expected in all unit activities. It is expected that students unable to attend any of these activities inform the unit convenor as soon as practical, by telephone or email and by submitting an absence form.
Student projects will often utilise space and equipment at the University of Canberra or partner organisation. Use of this space and equipment is generally subject to training and approval such as familiarity with occupational health and safety issues. Students should check with relevant staff if this applies to them and undergo appropriate process.
Required IT skills
Students should be conversant with searching for relevant articles via electronic means, the use of Canvas, and word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software. Specialist IT skills may be required for some projects and students should negotiate training opportunities with their supervisor(s).
There are no specific IT skills required for the conduct of this unit. Students are required to submit computer drafted work as well as undertake oral presentations with the aid of lecterns and projection screens. A range of software is commonly employed for these purposes. Individual student projects may require the learning of specific software and equipment, and this will be undertaken with the assistance of supervisors, technicians and other related staff.
There are no extra costs associated with this unit. The research however may have costs related to its conduct. The Discipline of Sport and Exercise Science offers a small amount towards research project costs for students, further information about this and the procedure for requesting research funds is held by Discipline staff. Please contact the unit convenor, supervisor or administrative staff for details.
Work placement, internships or practicums
There are no specific work integrated learning components to this unit. Many research projects will however incorporate opportunities to assist with industry activities which may also be important to the research project. Students must not undergo extra activities like this related to their projects unless they are enrolled in the Sport Research Honours unit. This can be done normally in December the year before the full Honours year.
Students are encouraged to partake in related research activities (e.g. UCRISE presentations) as these opportunities all enrich the student experience as well as research environment across the Discipline and related research centres.
