This subject comprises the second part of the compulsory [AQF] Capstone experience for the Master of Learning Intervention (MLI) course encompassing the three separate specialties of Hearing Impairment (HI) Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD) and Disability (D).
The subject will deepen students’ knowledge of various conventions and innovations in educational research across the three specialties. Through collaborative workshops, students will explore issues in the design of a research project, data collection/analysis, and reporting findings in written and verbal forms. Using conclusions and future directions drawn from the researching of educational practice (REP), ethical issues with practitioner research, using literature, and classifying research by purpose and method from Learning Intervention Internship 1, improving educational outcomes for students with disabilities, specific learning difficulties or hearing impairment will be further advanced.
Students will implement these conventions and innovations when undertaking their second 15 day practicum placement in an educational setting in which students with disabilities, specific learning difficulties or hearing impairment are accommodated. They will then have the opportunity to engage in directed observation and interaction with students, refining skills in planning, implementing and evaluating educational interventions.
Students will produce a capstone report in the style of a journal article including a literature review, an extensive case study and intervention plan developed after a continuous process of assessment, intervention and evaluation with a child/student with disabilities, specific learning difficulties or hearing impairment in areas such as language, literacy, mental health/well-being, thinking and learning, exceptionality, behavioural interactions and/or audiology.
