ISSUES, METHODS AND CREATIVE PRACTICES RESEARCH
Credit points: 30
This subject prepares Honours students in the Creative Arts to become highly skilled, independent researchers. Students will develop individual projects and extend their disciplinary knowledge in weekly seminars which will include close analysis of scholarly arguments in the creative arts. Library sessions will focus on individual projects, helping students to find relevant search terms, databases and bibliographies for their Honours projects. Creative practice as research will be foregrounded in seminar readings and class discussions. Students will explore ethical issues and ethics approval for research projects involving participants in interviews, surveys, focus groups and creative practice. The subject is available to Honours students in the Bachelor of Creative Arts and the BA. It is compulsory for BA students undertaking Honours in Screen Studies.
