Amcanion cyffredinol

Mae'r modiwl hwn yn datblygu'r ‘dychymyg methodolegol '. Mae'n cynnwys dulliau a ddefnyddir mewn ymchwil gwyddorau cymdeithasol cyfoes, gan ganolbwyntio ar faterion yn ymwneud â chynllunio ymchwil, dulliau newydd, casglu a dadansoddi data.

Amcan pennaf y fodiwl yw darparu pecyn cymorth methodoleg gynhwysfawr i fyfyrwyr. Trafodir ystod o ddulliau a'u hasesu'n feirniadol gan ddefnyddio astudiaethau enghreifftiol. Cynlluniwyd y modiwl fel bod myfyrwyr yn gallu gwerthfawrogi `gramadeg’ dulliau a bod â'r gallu i fyfyrio'n feirniadol ar ddulliau sy’n sylfaen i wyddorau cymdeithasol.

Cynnwys cwrs

Mae’r fodiwl wedi'i gynllunio i arwain myfyrwyr trwy'r broses o ymgymryd â phrosiectau ymchwil cymdeithasol. Yr amcan yw galluogi a chefnogi myfyrwyr i wneud penderfyniadau gwybodus parthed prosiectau ymchwil annibynnol a helpu myfyrwyr i ddatblygu ymwybyddiaeth feirniadol o'r dewisiadau methodolegol a'r materion sy'n gysylltiedig â chynnal ymchwil gymdeithasol.
