Literature and Writing in Professional Contexts - ENGL875

The unit promotes professional writing and research skills through the production of scholarly and/or creative projects in the fields of Children’s Literature and Creative Writing. You demonstrate the advanced learning, skills and knowledge gained in your Masters program studies through the application of your learning in the writing or production a Major Work.
In consultation with the unit convenors, each student selects one of three modules for their Major Work, either: a research-based Journal Article for a peer-reviewed journal; designing a community or school-based creative writing or literature/children’s literature studies Curriculum; or undertaking a Professional Context Project. Involvement in industry is encouraged. Past Professional Context projects have included production of an issue of The Quarry, a podcast series, and public literary event. The Major Work will complement and extend your individual research and vocational aims and utilize your Masters studies.
Assessment is based on your online participation in discussions and peer review, written learning reflection tasks, the conceptualization and planning of your Major Work, and documented completion of the Major Work. The unit is offered online, with discussions, feedback and resourcing of student projects supported online by the convenors.
