THE CRAFT OF RESEARCH
Credit points: 15
Students in the Craft of Research work in teams to develop a research proposal around a topic of their choice. Students have the opportunity to explore different approaches to research and discover which approaches are appropriate to specific fields of study and research questions. Students will have opportunities to work with top researchers from La Trobe's research priority areas. Towards the end of the subject, student teams will present their proposal to a panel of senior La Trobe staff.
