Being able to effectively seek and create knowledge through applying the research process is essential for preparing students for life-long learning and a life of contribution to the knowledge community. SST believes that students should be equipped with relevant skills and knowledge necessary for research projects from a young age.
By having our students conduct authentic research in and out of the classroom, they will be able to continue their search for knowledge in a systematic manner underpinned by ethical and social responsibility in the use, interpretation and generation of new knowledge.
The interdisciplinary nature of research done in authentic settings will aid students in transferring knowledge across disciplines and into the real world.
Students will be able to:
- Acquire project skills as a precursor to research and problem solving skills
- Apply knowledge and skills across disciplines in conducting their research tasks
- Apply the processes and tools of research to deepen their understanding of or solve a real world issue/problem
- Formulate clear and precise research questions, select appropriate research methodology, gather and analyse data, reach conclusions based on evidence, write research reports, and present their findings.
- Develop skills and dispositions that foster life-long learning.
