HMK3RBB

2016

Credit points: 15

This subject addresses La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential. Global Citizenship is about learning to live in an interconnected world, including the social, environmental, political and economic challenges this brings.

Subject outline

Students in Research Beyond Borders are introduced to the exciting world of global research and varying contexts. Is interdisciplinary research or even discipline-specific research conducted differently overseas? How does research compare between University and non-University sectors? As a prelude to the International Study tour, students will prepare a research brief which appraises the challenges and opportunities of conducting research in a global context. Students will finish their project from second year and detail their research findings. Using the knowledge and experience they have gained throughout the Hallmark Program, students will prepare an academic paper and present their findings to a forum of their peers with a view to publication
