"Incorporate research methods with analysing qualitative data"

This teaching resource enables students to develop a number of skills:

  • students learn important research discovery skills including how to explore and search official websites
  • they learn about the specific restrictions on certain data, as well as issues of confidentiality and data protection when working with personal data
  • through the exploration of data collections they learn about a wide variety of research methods

In completing an assignment students learn to engage with a genuine, real-life piece of research. They are asked to complete specific tasks whilst working within word limits.
