Strategy to Promote Active Learning of an Advanced Research Method
McDermott, Hilary J.; Dovey, Terence M.
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v12 n1 p92-95 Mar 2013
Research methods courses aim to equip students with the knowledge and skills required for research yet seldom include practical aspects of assessment. This reflective practitioner report describes and evaluates an innovative approach to teaching and assessing advanced qualitative research methods to final-year psychology undergraduate students. An active-learning approach involving auto-photography was developed and implemented as the assessment requirements for a qualitative component of an advanced research methods module. The authors suggest that this student-centred active-learning exercise is a useful and successful strategy to promote the construction of knowledge.
