ObjectivesIn completing this module students will be able to:

- engage in discussion with a tutor(s) concerning how this topic might be investigated;
- under supervision, carry out reading and study, and, if appropriate, research, on this topic;
- put this topic in a broader perspective, ensuring where appropriate that the experience of more than one school or college is considered and that recent evidence/research of the national/local situation is included;
- under supervision, write up the study in an appropriate form.
Use of Knowledge
Students negotiate their critical studies on an individual basis at a dissertation proposal meeting held with their Academic Tutor.
Students will be required to audit the module EDUC5060M Getting Started: Research Questions and Approaches in Education or equivalent unless their programme manager or the taught postgraduate tutor believes that they already have sufficient knowledge or skills about research.
Students will be allocated a dissertation supervisor who will discuss their critical study proposal and meet with them on a regular basis as the study progresses.
