Enrolment in this unit is handled by the Institute of Koorie Education.
The unit begins by discussing the importance and contribution that research can make to the knowledge needs of natural and cultural environments. This discussion will also include issues such as the protocols required to engage in such research, community consultation processes and the intellectual property rights that protect such research. The unit then examines the various methods for locating, gathering, interpreting and writing research. This includes a critical analysis of the source materials and an understanding of the context in which they will be presented. Students will then construct a viable research question and write to their question and present this research to a small forum of peers. The unit will be enhanced by a field visit to the Koorie Heritage Trust which has an Oral History Unit that conducts history recording and archiving of Victorian Koorie Histories.
Research techniques 40%, research essay 50%, research presentation 10%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve at least 50% for the research essay.
