CoordinatorDr John Chesterman
|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject is available to one student per semester to undertake a program of independent research, primarily at the Library of the Parliament of Victoria, and to present, in a scholarly manner, the outcomes of that research. The particular topic will be negotiated by the student, the subject coordinator and staff at the Parliamentary Library, and a formal agreement will be entered into early in the semester by all three parties, setting out the parameters of the research to be conducted. The student will be supervised by the subject co-ordinator in conjunction with staff at the Parliamentary Library, and will be assessed by the subject co-ordinator. On completion of this subject the student will have demonstrated an ability to utilise the research materials available at the Victorian Parliamentary Library, will show a detailed understanding of the chosen topic, will have read published literature on the topic, will have considered methodological and theoretical aspects relevant to research on the topic, and will be able thoroughly to analyse the topic, orally and in prose form.
