Unit aim

This is an independent studies unit.  The details must be negotiated with the Course Coordinator and a supervisor for the unit. It may include, but not be limited to one or more of the following: a research project, community or industry placement or project, conduct of a systematic review, or development of instructional or informational resources. The nature of reporting of activities should be appropriate to the nature of the task, for example, a draft publication for a research project versus a reflective journal for a community placement.
