Opinions on value
8I believe its primary value is to get the students thinking, writing and reviewing literature. It is too poorly supervised and supported for it to be a true ‘research’ learning experience but this doesn’t negate its value.
30The value of RP1 is that it enables students to have some experience of research skills and theoretically increases confidence in independent :working prior to RP2.
1As RP1 is conducted without supervision (though general support is available), there is little learning and insight gained. The default feedback through the summative assessment process is too general at best and detached from the experience, and thus of limited effectiveness.
