7021EDN in 2019

Welcome to the Wiki which will be used to support your work in your independent research study in this Trimester.

These pages are part of a much larger site that was set up years ago to support students beginning to do research in education. The advice in the bulk of this Wiki is for people undertaking research work that lasts a good deal longer than 12 weeks so if you are browsing the site you need to keep that in mind. The site is intended to be a general resource for research students. The pages associated with this will have a 7021 tag on them and will be linked to this page. Some of the larger site may be of interest but the material associated with 7021 will be linked to here.

There is an item in the top menu bar, far right for this page: 7021. So no matter where you are in the Wiki you can always get back to this page or other commonly used pages for 7021. The pages also use breadcrumb navigation at the top of each page so you can easily go back to the page you were reading previously.

When a page from the rest of this Wiki is linked, we will use the word Kitchen to remind you that you will need to navigate back to the 7021 material.

The wiki has an excellent search facility (top right of the title).

Links both internal and external in this Wiki are in red. Links to pages that do not exist yet are in orange.

If you have suggestions to add to the site or ammend what is there please let me know.

There is a translate option above the tag cloud on the side menu (on the left) for those whose first language is not English. I'd like to know how useful that is. Google translate can be fairly clunky.
