This video presentation explores the methods that I’ve been using with my undergraduate students to help them to gain a practical understanding of research methods and to become prepared to use research within their final year project.
The presentation is part of the current Higher Education Academy project on Innovation In The Assessment Of Social Science Research Methods.
