The module views creative, technical and therapeutic practices as research processes and helps students locate their own work within contemporary, advanced-level practice in their discipline and to make a critical evaluation of the bodies of practice and ideas that sustain them. Key skills addressed include those of research management, critical evaluation, academic conventions, notions of creative, technical and therapeutic practice as research methodologies, and a range of modes of contextual analysis.
The skills gleaned on this module will provide students with a platform for research for the remainder of the programme and in their future careers.
