In this unit each student conceptualises, designs and undertakes a project that engages with their individual vocational or education aims. Each project will extend upon the skills and knowledge developed during the student’s Masters study. Students engage in a Major Work from one of three modules: a Professional Context Project, such as an internship or other industry-focused project; the design of a school or community-based creative writing curriculum; or a research-based Journal Article suitable for a postgraduate level peer-reviewed journal. The unit is not intended for the production of a piece of creative writing. Students plan and undertake their project through independent work with the support of the convenor and student peers. Peer feedback and collaboration is encouraged. At the unit’s outcome students have engaged in a significant professionalising experience culminating in documentation and a digital portfolio showcase.
