Acknowledgement of Country
This class is taught on the lands of the Wattamattageal clan of the Darug nation.
We acknowledge the Wattamattageal clan as the traditional custodians of the land on which Macquarie University stands.
We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging.
This land was never ceded. It always was and always will be Aboriginal land.What is an acknowledgement of country?
Why is an acknowledgement of country important?
What you can expect of me
1. Before semester starts
Before semester starts I will provide weekly topics and weekly readings.
2. Communication outside class: Messenger or WhatsApp
Outside class you should consult with me via Facebook messenger or WhatsApp.
I will also respond to email, but it is not ideal for answering research project questions, as often we need to have a dialogue which is easier on a messaging platform.
What I expect of you
1. Borrow or buy the textbook
Neuman, W. L. (2013). Understanding Research: Pearson New International Edition. Harlow: Pearson Education UK.
2. Join a project group in week 1 + register it + set up Facebook Messenger chat with Nick
Find a project group (internal students we will do this in class, external students can do on the discussion chat on iLearn). Please register it (details to be provided)
3. Read the required readings each week
Internal students should read readings before coming to class, and external students before watching the lectures.
4. Do the ethics training before you start collecting data
Week 2 has compulsory ethics training. Everyone in your group needs to do this before you can start collecting data.
5. Get written ethical approval from me via email before you conduct interviews or collect surveys
I also need to approve your interview and survey questions and informed consent form before you start collecting data. Please email me these, plus your article to be replicated, and wait for my formal approval before you start collecting any data. firstname.lastname@example.org
6. Participate in your project group
Participate and contribute to your project group fully and seriously or you will be penalised in your peer review mark. This includes coming to class (for internal students), as we will do significant project work in each class (we will do workshops at the end of each class, applying the knowledge from that week to your project).
