Enrolment not permitted
EDES9008B has been successfully completed
Topic description

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.

Educational aims

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 completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a capacity for independent, self-directed learning
  2. Demonstrate mastery of the literature in an area of education
  3. Analyse and evaluate literature in order to show its strengths and limitations
  4. 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
  5. Demonstrate a level of academic achievement consistent with post graduate standards

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.

FULL

If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
