This subject comprises the Capstone experience for this course. Drawing on theory, knowledge and skills developed during the program, participants design and complete an individually negotiated, supervised investigative project.
Projects tackle a real life policy or management issue; integrate student learning; and present an actionable proposal for policy makers or institutional managers.
Participants are introduced to research and project management methods; given guidance in the design of their project; and must submit an 10,000 word report that may later form the basis of a workplace report or journal article.
A hurdle requirement for this subject is that students will present their project design and findings to a panel and their peers on two occasions. The final presentation should include a reflection on the key learnings they have gained from their studies in the Master of Tertiary Education (Management).
