This is the second of two subjects that all Master of Teaching students complete as part of their Capstone experience. In this subject, students will undertake a semester long research project based on a limited number of topics introduced in ‘Researching Educational Practice’. Projects will involve either field-based research, a literature review, or the analysis of existing documents or secondary data. The focus of all topics will be on the use of research to inform and improve educational practice. Throughout the semester students will receive ongoing supervision from a member of academic staff through campus or school based group workshops. The Capstone project will culminate with students synthesizing the findings of their research in a written form such as a conference paper, journal article or report. Students will also be expected to report findings to the education community where the research took place.
