Other Requisites

This course is a two-unit final capstone research course which is recommended for the final semester of study. Students wishing to enrol in EDR8061 must have successfully completed EDR8801 Foundations of Research in Education and EDR8802 Foundation Methods for Research in Education.


Learners will, with guidance from a member of Faculty staff as their supervisor, 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 or journal article presented at an appropriately recognised scholarly standard. 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 project supervisor. Before enrolling in the course, the student should have discussed the proposed project with the Specialisation Coordinator, and the Faculty member who would act as supervisor, PRIOR to submitting their project proposal for this course. Successful completion of this course may lead to enrolment into the DEDU or PHD. Students need to meet the requirements of these programs.
