This module is to prepare participants with the process skills for undertaking their own research projects, both during the Diploma level of the programme and for the MSc Dissertation if appropriate.
Learning and Skill Aims include:
Day 1 - exploration of TA theory and application in a professional role
Day 2 - supervision, discussion, exam preparation - you set the agenda
The theory day is very interactive, with input and discussion, activities for exploration and for action. All participants are invited to share their knowledge and expertise and syndicate groups will allow for sharing, discovery, challenge and growth while learning together.
The supervision day that follows, is a place for the participants to create the agenda. Opportunities to give and receive supervision, to run a teach for feedback, to guide a discussion on theory or to explore a new exercise you have designed. Each session will be followed by a process review where possible, which offers an opportunity to practice our skills of analysis and reflection, for sharing our process and for deepening our knowledge of theory.
