Unit aim

The aim of this unit is provide postgraduate students with the opportunity to improve their skills in a chosen area of study.

Unit content

This is the first unit of a pair of units (this unit, FOR03169, and a second unit FOR03170), in which students work on a forestry management issue or research topic. Students select a suitable project, which they complete under the one-on-one supervision of an academic supervisor. In this first unit, students conduct a literature review of the topic. They use this literature review to identify a gap in understanding that they will address in the project. Students prepare a project proposal, in which they summarise the issues, identify a methodology suited to the issue, and present a plan for implementing the project in the other unit (FOR 03170) and gather relevant information. These two units prepare students for the transition into professional life.

The Minor Thesis units require students to work on an individual topic of their choosing, under the individual supervision of one academic. There is, therefore, no syllabus. The specific content of the student’s work will discussed with the supervisor, and will be defined in the project proposal submitted as part of the assessment in FOR03169.

 

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
