Course Summary

 Have you ever passed off something as absolute truth when, in actuality, it could have been mere conjecture? Crafting a credible report hinges on the accuracy of every piece of information it contains, regardless of your familiarity with the topic. To ensure the integrity of your facts, thorough research is essential.  Conducting effective research transcends merely amassing vast amounts of data. It also involves distinguishing between trustworthy and dubious sources. Inadequate research or misrepresentation of facts could lead to dissemination of false information, thereby jeopardising your reliability. Hence, honing your research capabilities is crucial for enhancing your knowledge base and efficiently sharing new insights with your peers.  

Upon successful completion of this course, you will have the skills to:  
• Identify credible sources
• Collect and choose pertinent information
• Structure and convey your discoveries efficiently  

Why enrol on this course?  
This course is tailored for anyone tasked with report writing who may benefit from a refresher in research methodologies. It will guide you in devising a coherent strategy for your research endeavours, securing relevant data, and articulating your findings in a coherent report or presentation.

It also provides you with the knowledge, skills and capacity to research and study on an academic programme. You will explore the key features and functions of a range of research and experimental methodologies.  You will develop the academic and specialist vocabulary and language skills related to Research and Study skills.  You will get the chance to reflect on your own approach and style of learning and to get a chance to explore the technologies, the resources that underpin research and get to grips with time management and planning. Above all, this module will help you to gather, interpret and present information, and understand plagiarism, referencing, copyright and intellectual property rights.  Exciting!
