In this course, students will learn the necessary research skills, as well as digital, ethical and cultural considerations, to explore the background of an issue or challenge they see for youth and/or their community, hapu, or iwi. These may include issues of social justice, equity, sustainability, positive development, policy, (global) citizenship and others. Culturally responsive approaches to gathering evidence drawing on the braided rivers model (Macfarlane, Macfarlane & Gillon 2015) will guide this course. Students will develop an action plan of how to address their chosen topic, measure the effectiveness and impact of their actions, and to write a proposal that reflects all relevant aspects.
