EDR8060 Masters Project 1
Students wishing to complete a (4 credit point research pathway) should complete EDR8000 Foundation of Contemporary Research Methods and EDR8060 Masters Project I prior to EDR8061 Masters Project II
Learners will, with guidance from a member of academic staff, plan and execute an independent project which is clearly related to their overall program of study, especially to their area of major study. It is envisaged that normally this one-unit project will not involve formal research but it should include an investigative or developmental/evaluative component with clear evidence of application of the knowledge developed in the student's masters program. The project should lead to the preparation of a substantial written report presented at an appropriately scholarly standard. This report may be presented in the format of a paper for publication in an approved academic or professional journal. Project reports must reflect mastery of the content of current literature and of knowledge and skills developed by the learner in his/her program of study. This course will operate on the basis of frequent individual consultation and feedback between the student and the staff member nominated as the study supervisor. Before enrolling in the course students are advised to discuss the nature, processes and anticipated outcomes of the proposed study topic or activity with a faculty member who might act as their study supervisor. Project proposals and on-going implementation will be critically reviewed through learner-supervisor ongoing interaction and negotiation. NOTES: 1.
