With guidance from a member of academic staff as supervisor, the student will plan and design an independent [research or evaluation] project which relates to their overall program of study. The project will lead to the preparation of a substantial written report presented at an appropriate scholarly standard. This report may be 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 through this 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 their proposal with the course examiner who will allocate a supervisor for the project. Implementation of the project will be facilitated and critically reviewed through ongoing learner-supervisor interaction and negotiation. NOTES
