Short activities and case studies offer hands-on research scenarios to explore, and we provide support and interaction in a friendly forum environment.

The course is self paced and each week a new module is released.

Dates: 21 February – 20 March (4 week online course – self paced)

Time commitment: 2-3 hours per week

  1. Hi there

    I don’t suppose you’ll be running this course again will you? I saw it too late… 🙁
    Thanks.
