DK1G35 Community Learning and Development: Social Science Approaches

Description

This pack contains the Tutor’s Support Pack and SQA Descriptor for this unit. This Unit is designed to familiarise you with the main sociological theories used to assist in the understanding of societies. An understanding of the theories will enable you to look at communities and to apply social science approaches to evaluate issues faced by communities. You will also be introduced to a variety of research methods which you will be required to apply to your community/ies in order to produce a clear outline of the community/ies and the issues faced by them. These research methods will provide you with useful skills which you will be able to apply in professional and personal capacities. Outcomes In order to successfully complete Outcome 1 of this Unit you will be required to produce an op

Consent is a basic component of many types of every day encounter - but it is particularly relevant to the interaction between an individual and a healthcare professional (or someone acting on their behalf). This is because without consent many actions that are an integral part of healthcare, such as medical examination or treatment, are unlawful.

Digital Anthropology is a Spring 2003 applied social science and media arts seminar, surveying the blossoming arena of digital-artifact enabled experimental sociology/anthropology. We will emphasize on both (a) Technology Testbeds – systematically deploying research lab prototypes and corporate pre-production products in a sample human organizational population and carefully observing the social consequences, and (b) Sociometrics – using digital artifacts to better observe and measure the complex social reality of interesting human systems.
