Research through Practice
In this unit (that is mandatory on the MA Academic Practice) you will consider how practice as a mode of enquiry can be developed as research. You will explore, compare and evaluate different approaches to researching through practice, leading the design of a research proposal on an academic practice theme that you will then develop and implement within the Dissertation unit.
Before taking this unit you are advised to complete a practice-based Self-initiated Project and/ or the Introduction to Practice as Research unit.
During this unit you will:
- Attend a series of workshops, presentations and seminars
- Explore and record arts-based practices as forms of enquiry
- Submit a positioning statement to accompany practice-based explorations (1500 words with negotiated evidence of practice)
- Submit a written research proposal (3000 words)
