Overall aims and purpose

Nod y modiwl hwn yw rhoi profiad uniongyrchol o gynnal ymchwil seicolegol i fyfyrwyr. Bydd hyn yn datblygu eu sgiliau o ran casglu ac adolygu llenyddiaeth, dylunio arbrofion, casglu data, a dadansoddi a dehongli data. Yn ogystal, bydd myfyrwyr yn datblygu eu sgiliau cynllunio, eu sgiliau trefnu, a'u gallu i gydweithio gydag eraill.

Course content

Bydd myfyrwyr yn ymgysylltu â phob agwedd o'r broses ymchwil, gan gynnwys dylunio arbrofion, ystyried materion moesegol, profi cyfranogwyr, dadansoddi data, ac ysgrifennu adroddiadau ymchwil.

Learning outcomes

  1. Adnabod a chwblhau dadansoddiadau data addas.

  2. Trafod a gwerthuso canlyniadau astudiaethau o fewn cyd-destun y llenyddiaeth berthnasol.

  3. Dangos y gallu i grynhoi, a chyflwyno gwybodaeth am eich ymchwil gwyddonol ar ffurf lafar.

  4. Dadansoddi dadleuon yn gritigol a chyfosod ymchwil mewn maes penodol.

  5. Dangos y gallu i gyfathrebu ymchwil gwyddonol ar ffurf ysgrifenedig ac ar ffurf lafar (POPPS).

  6. Disgrifio a chymhwyso dulliau ymchwil sy'n berthnasol i faes penodol.

  7. Dangos dealltwriaeth o faterion moesegol y dylid eu hystyried wrth gynnal ymchwil seicolegol ac wrth ysgrifennu am yr ymchwil, a sicrhau fod yr ymchwil yn cyd-fynd â chanllawiau moesegol y Gymdeithas Seicolegol Brydeinig.

  8. Datblygu hyder wrth gyflwyno deunydd seicolegol ar ffurf lafar (POPPS).
