Approaches to Teaching and Learning:
The goal of this module is to develop your skills in independent research and writing. You will do so within a supportive environment, with meetings with your supervisor (usually the module coordinator). You will have identified a viable project in semester 1 in HIS42920 Project Development. In HIS42930 you will meet with your supervisor to develop the project, using chapter drafts or equivalent which you will submit as a basis for discussion. You can expect oral and or written feedback on the chapters submitted - but chapters will be read only once by the supervisor.
