This unit further develops students’ understanding of the tasks and key decisions involved in sound research design and writing by working with a nominated supervisor. It is the second in a two-unit sequence which will prepare students to undertake the research paper (EXR796/EXR797) or minor thesis (EXR798/EXR799) component of their Master’s course. In EXR791 students develop their own detailed and well-argued research proposal and provide critical feedback on peers’ proposals. If required, students will also apply for ethics approval to conduct their research. Students work with a supervisor to refine their conceptualisation of the research project and to present a well-developed summary of their proposal for review.
