Presentation of assignment ideas; unit evaluation [8] RME assignment The assignment for the RME unit will normally be a plan for a small-scale educational enquiry. If you are near to completing your five units, this assignment

can be used to develop a plan for your dissertation study. If you are closer to the start of your five units, you may not be ready to plan what you are going to do for your dissertation. However, there is still value in developing a hypothetical plan which enables you to discuss issues relating to designing a small-scale research study. It is possible to use this plan as the basis for an Educational Enquiry unit where you conduct the enquiry as one of the units in your profile. (This might act as a pilot or preliminary study for what you then go on to do for your dissertation.) RME assignment

your assignment should be 5,000 words long, with a 10% margin on either side it should draw on your professional experience as well as critically engaging with relevant literature sources all published works you mention in the text must be clearly and fully cited and referenced
