In trying to articulate the dimensions of ‘being an undergraduate researcher’ I have identified three domains of activity: Individual (desk based), Community and Work-based. I have then identified some strands of activity with each of these three domains (with assistance from Ian and Jane and Stephen :-).
So what have I missed? Is this a fair assessment of what a BA LTR researcher does?
I have later added on the recommended minimum time allocation too.
The clarification of the 10 hours of desk and community work is more easily quantifiable than is the time spent in research and inquiry and reflection and collaboration in the workplace . Whether it is possible, or even useful, to quantify the work-integraterd element is questionable. It created potentially a false seperation which is not in keeping with the ethos of work-integrated learning.
