Professional Inquiry A (EDMED7074)

This is the first of two courses, which requires candidates to bring together the sum total of the learning from their specialisation studies to engage in an extended process of inquiry in response to an existing problem or issue within their organisational setting. In this course ccandidates are introduced to the forms of inquiry and their philosophical standpoints to aid in the identification of the forms of data collection and analysis that might are best suited for the inquiry into the existing problem or issue. Candidates are expected to identify a small small-scale study project. In some instances, collaborative projects can be undertaken. The process of inquiry is planned, managed, and assessed in conjunction with others to enable candidates to learn, practice, apply, and report on how their research leadership aapproach contributed to finding a possible solution to the problem or greater understanding of the issue.
