PHSE507 Disability Case Study Research

2021 information for papers will be published in early September. 

Theory and practice of case study research as an empirical inquiry. Students conduct a pilot study with children at the Movement Development Clinic or at any fields of their interests related to disability.

Students will learn and conduct case study research while teaching children with unique learning needs at the Movement Development Clinic or at any field of their interest. Case study research is an excellent method for novice researchers to gain insight into a case. Past students enrolled in this paper have presented their case study research at international conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.
