E-Learning Module for Generic Research Methods

This module has been produced to assist study at the University of Southampton which requires research expertise. The module is designed for students in all three faculties of the university undertaking masters or postgraduate study. It has eight generic themes and is sufficiently flexible to allow each of the themes to stand alone, or all eight to be undertaken as an entire module. In some schools a student completing the entire module and associated assessments may be awarded 20 credit points.

Academic staff from a wide variety of disciplines has made contributions to ensure the relevancy of the material presented. To gain the maximum benefit from this module it is recommended that students regularly discuss their progress through the module with their tutor.
