This unit has been designed to introduce students to preliminary concepts in research methodology employed in psychological research and the health, human and social sciences. The material covered in this unit will provide the necessary background for students who will do research as part of their undergraduate or professional careers, i.e., to be discerning researchers. The goal of this unit is to provide students with the skills to be aware of the range of methodologies available, and to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of these methodologies. It is a requirement of enrolment in the unit that students have access to the CQUniversity website and the Internet.
