In this subject, you will plan for and undertake an individual research project or, depending on availability, industry placement/project. Under supervision, you will prepare a project proposal, complete a literature and resources review, and research and produce a relevant outcome such as a paper suitable for presentation at a conference or publication in a scholarly journal, or an online project such as a website or social media presence, as determined with your supervisor/s. You will not be required to originate primary data, but will be expected to conduct advanced research using existing primary research data available from other sources and also utilise and explore the analysis already published by other scholars and/or industry sources. Students may be permitted to present the final outcome of projects using elements of online design or production; students may be permitted to link their project to tasks or duties within their employment or community.
