An online postgraduate unit provided by Griffith University and Open Universities Australia, Realising Sustainable Middle Years Reform draws on educational research literature based in disciplines such as educational sociology, philosophy and psychology to help you identify a suitable research topic based around middle years schooling. Your final proposal should relate to relevant principles of middle schooling such as middle years curriculum, pedagogy, school reform, culture and educational psychology.
On completion of this unit you will have identified the research topic or question you wish to pursue, and will have created a proposal that frames your area of study appropriately. You will undertake appropriate literature reviews and demonstrate knowledge of a broad range of related research in the field. A literature review will accompany your draft proposal to form the basis of your project, which will be undertaken as part of the subsequent Action Research in the Middle Years unit.
This unit is delivered via a range of learning methods and resources, including blogs, podcasting, embedded multimedia, standard media, glossary and wikis. Assessment consists of the submission of an annotated research proposal and a research-based literature review.
