|Subject Overview:||This subject uses Research Seminars as a vehicle to teach students the experimental approach to contemporary research questions. The seminars will be presented by a mixture of departmental faculty, invited speakers from outside the department, and postgraduate students. Seminars will include a wide range of research topics undertaken on campus as well as topics such as animal welfare, professional development (e.g. career options post- Honours, PhD) and communication skills (e.g. thesis writing workshops, oral presentation seminars). |
Additional tasks will be designed to improve analytical and writing skills as well as to encourage students to expand their knowledge of literature outside their research field. These tasks include the completion of a research essay on a topic outside their research field and undertaking of a critical review in an exam format.
