SWN020 Practice Research Project

This unit synthesises the knowledge and skills gained across your degree, in particular your learning in SWN019 Research Skills for Social Work. Research skills are a required competency for Social Workers. There is increasing expectation regarding critical analysis of evidence informing practice, hence social workers need to demonstrate the efficacy of their practice. Social workers need to not only have an understanding of relevant social research methods but also be capable of implementing these methods to produce research outcomes of significance. Within this unit you will design and implement a research project in a rigorous and ethical manner. This research project is a major scholarly endeavour and serves as a critical component of the capstone experience as it assesses the application of your 'whole of course' knowledge, skills and values and aligns with the completion of your final placement and your Professional Learning Plan.
