^ EDUC9722 - Coursework Project in Education (Part 1)
Enrolment not permitted
EDES9008B has been successfully completed
This topic is designed to enable students to develop areas of interest arising out of the theoretical and research literature in education. A range of activities is permissible. The coursework project should be a substantial and convincing piece of work which displays the student's knowledge and abilities in their best light. Students may analyse and evaluate the literature in order to show its strengths and limitations or its application to current educational practice. In each case students must indicate their ability to work independently and demonstrate mastery of the literature in their chosen area of education. Assessment is based on a final report of 9,000 words.
This topic aims to:
provide students with an opportunity to explore in depth an area of interest within the field of education that could not be undertaken within the framework of an existing coursework topic
enable students to work independently on topics related to the theoretical and research literature in this area
enable students to demonstrate mastery of the literature in an area of education
facilitate the development of a level of academic achievement consistent with post graduate standards
Expected learning outcomes
On completing this topic students will be able to:
demonstrate a capacity for independent, self-directed learning
demonstrate mastery of the literature in an area of education
analyse and evaluate literature in order to show its strengths and limitations
examine the possible uses or implications of the literature which could involve discussion of how the implications might be tested, how the literature might be used in education practice, or how the literature might apply to the analysis and understanding of particular problem areas
demonstrate a level of academic achievement consistent with post graduate standards
