What is research? How does research contribute to my practice area and the ethical issues that might be involved? Define and provide referenced understandings of the paradigms of qualitative and quantitative research, and an explanation of the ideas and concepts that are involved. The strengths and weaknesses of different research methods within the qualitative and quantitative paradigms.For the formative assessment you will write 1000 words under the title "Research Methodology". You will provide a referenced definition of what is research, .consider how research relates to your area of practice and define and consider ethical issues pertinent to your particular specialist practice. You will discuss an understanding of qualitative and quantitative research and the ideas associated with these approaches. Your discussion will be supported by references which will be formatted consistent with the Harvard style of referencing. The formative assignment has been designed to have relevance to the module outcomes (see below). It is intended that much of what you write can be used in the final assignment, or at the very least that your thinking has begun to be informed by a research aware approach whereby you can process research and interpret this information, and then apply it to practice.
