SCOPING REVIEWS IN DISABILITY RESEARCH
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will develop a detailed protocol for a scoping review of research literature to identify core issues and gaps in the literature that is related to a field of disability practice. Students will undertake background work to justify their scoping review, construct and refine a review question, design a comprehensive search for relevant research literature, design unbiased methods to select and evaluate the research literature, and select appropriate methods for the extraction and synthesis of data from the included studies. Students will work closely with their thesis supervisor while developing independent research skills, including the ability to access and critically evaluate relevant literature.
