This subject comprises the [AQF] Capstone experience for this course. Drawing on theory, knowledge and skills developed throughout the Master of Education (Educational Management), students will complete an individually negotiated project in which the student undertakes a theoretical study (for example, a substantial critical review of a particular body of literature), a research or workplace project, or an approved relevant educational experience. The Capstone project will culminate with students synthesizing the findings of their work in a written form such as a journal article or report. A hurdle requirement for this subject is that students will also provide an oral presentation of their findings, which should incorporate a reflection on the key learnings and understandings they have gained from their studies in the Master of Education (Educational Management).
