IFN001 Advanced Information Research Skills

IFN001 is a 4-credit point mandatory coursework unit for students in IF49, Doctor of Philosophy, IF80, and Masters of Philosophy students. It provides preparation for research at QUT by way of a systematic introduction to research skills and knowledge within the context of students' fields of research. The unit content assists students in their work for the Stage 2 milestone or research proposal completion. IFN001 lays the foundations of independent research, critical evaluation of information and effective management of information and research data, which will be further developed during the progression of a research degree. These skills are essential for scholars operating in today's data intensive research environment and facilitate the capacity for life-long learning.
