Unit aim

This unit provides a structured guide to conducting an Honours research project within an Indigenous relational knowledge context, adopting appropriate research methodology and methods. The unit will help you to establish structures and procedures to provide a firm ethical and functional foundation to your research within an Indigenous context. Comparisons between Indigenous and non-Indigenous research theory and practice will be contextualised. You will be able to recognise, and should be committed to protect Indigenous intellectual and cultural property rights in research. You will be guided to apply the skills developed throughout the unit to create a research proposal for your Honours project.
