£79 A1. Creating a proposal and forming a hypothesis for research
Level: 3Unit type: Guided learning hours: 120
Learners propose and undertake research within a sport context. Unit in brief
Unit introduction The principles of improvement are central to sport and are enabled through knowledge and understanding identified through research and investigation. Whether trying to engage the community to be more active or develop new tactics and techniques, there are always opportunities for development that come through testing practice or assessing information. Being able to manage a research project is a highly valuable and desirable skill. In this unit, you will develop broad research skills, including knowledge, understanding and professional behaviours required for independent investigations in sport. You will develop the skills needed to form a proposal in response to a theme and related topics. You will form a hypothesis and define a methodology for investigating the validity of the hypothesis. You will follow ethical guidelines and use techniques for analysing and interpreting data in order to draw conclusions and consider the impact of these. On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to propose and carry out independent research within a range of careers or in higher education. The problem-solving and analytical skills developed are highly valued in higher education and in employment.
In this unit you will: Learning aims A. Propose a research project in sport B. Apply investigation skills for a research project in sport C. Draw conclusions from a research project in sport.
