This unit is designed to give students an appreciation of the significance of research in future ICT professional practice. This unit provides an introduction to both qualitative and quantitative approaches and will provide students with basic research skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable them to conduct their own research in an ethical and rigorous manner. In addition, students will also learn how to conduct a literature review and develop critical thinking skills in the process.
