Overall aims and purpose

Mae'r modiwl hwn yn rhoi’r cyfle i fyfyrwyr i gynnal ymchwil unigol ar raddfa gymharol fach er yn ddarn sylweddol dan oruchwyliaeth goruchwyilydd ymchwil. Bydd myfyrwyr yn adnabod cwestiwn ymchwil, casglu a dadansoddi data sy'n berthnasol i’r cwestiwn ymchwil, gan ddefnyddio fframwaith dadansoddol priodol. Yna byddant yn mynd i'r afael â'r cwestiwn ymchwil yng ngoleuni eu canfyddiadau. Mae'r ymchwil a wnaed yn cael ei gyflwyno mewn fformat o draethawd hir 20,000 (uchafswm) gair, gan ddefnyddio’r confensiynau arferol.

Bydd angen i fyfyrwyr gael cymeradwyaeth moeseg y Brifysgol cyn cychwyn ar eu prosiect ymchwil.

Course content

Ceir tiwtorialau goruchwylio un-i-un, a bennir yn ól cynnydd y myfyriwr unigol. Bydd hyn yn cynnwys cyfarwyddyd ar adnabod a chynllunio testun ymchwil priodol, ymchwilio a chymhwyso cysyniadau damcaniaethol perthnasol, cynllunio a chynnal gwaith maes a chasglu data (lle bo'n berthnasol) a chyflwyno'r canlyniadau yn gydlynol ac yn y ffurf briodol.

Teaching and Learning Strategy

Hours
Individual Project

Bydd y myfyriwr yn cwblhau prosiect ymchwil estynedig ar fater sydd yn berthnasol i ac yn gysylltiedig â gwaith cymdeithasol, gan ddilyn confensiynau cynllunio a chwblhau ymchwil, gan cynnwys cymeradwyaeth moesegol.

Bydd myfyrwyr hefyd yn cwblhau poster fel dull o ledaenu canfyddiadau eu hymchwil.

Bydd goruchwilydd yn rhoi cefnogaeth diwtorial ar sail unigol i helpu myfyrwyr i ddod yn briodol hunanfeirniadol ac i gefnogi eu hymreolaeth gynyddol fel ymchwilwyr.
