Learners will, with guidance from a member of Faculty staff, plan and execute an independent project which is clearly related to their overall program of study. This two-unit project is intended to meet the needs of learners who wish to include a research or evaluation component in their Masters program by providing a venue in which a research or evaluation project can be undertaken to apply and/or extend knowledge developed in their program of study. 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 research-based 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 prior program. 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, the student should have discussed the proposed project with the course examiner and where possible with the Faculty member who would act as supervisor, PRIOR to submitting their project proposal for this course. NOTE: Before enrolling in the course, learners should have successfully completed a course in methods for research and/or evaluation or be able to demonstrate to the course examiner that they have otherwise acquired such knowledge and skills. Where possible, students should have discussed the proposed project with the Faculty member who would act as supervisor, PRIOR to submitting their project proposal for this course.
