PACE for Research - MRES701

This PACE unit provides MRes students with the opportunity to undertake research as part of a research team or in community or industry settings. Students will be required to identify and design a research project that aligns with the priorities of a partner organisation. Students’ projects will be supervised by a member of the partner organisation and supported through a series of academic seminars. This unit aims to equip students with practical problem-solving and research skills, as well as insight into conducting research that involves a partner and is aimed helping them to achieve their organisational goals. Over the course of a semester, students work with the partner organisation to identify and fully scope a research project. Students should complete 100 hours working with their partner organisation eventuating in delivery of a formal written project plan. Students may choose to use the research conducted in this unit as the basis of their MRes thesis in the second year.
