Connecting Research and Practice


The overall aim of this module is to enhance your ability to articulate and analyse aspects of your professional practice and to connect these to the related research literature.

In this way, Connecting Research and Practiceturns your day-to-day professional activity into more reflective engagement, illuminated by theories, concepts and research findings.

The module is integrated into all three of the core modules in Part 1 of the programme. Within each of these modules, you will undertake a 2,000-word assignment focused on the links between the module’s content and your own professional practice.

These short assignments offer an early, “low stakes” opportunity to produce academic writing within each module. Our experience shows that getting you writing at an early stage of the programme is essential to its successful completion and for the pace of your development as a researcher.
