This Unit of Study offers students a scaffolded experience that will help them to develop research skills and ability to embed, articulate and demonstrate research through and in the form of a composition portfolio. Under the guidance of a supervisory team, the student will initially plan and propose the semester's creative work project work for approval. This would normally be composition-based research output related to the student's overarching research topic. Following the project's development through the semester, the student will present the work undertaken in an appropriate format at the end of semester for formative feedback. Students will attend the weekly multidisciplinary Postgraduate Creative Research seminar which will provide regular opportunities to present creative work research and to explore and hone presentation skills.
