In this, your capstone unit, you will create a project that evidences the application of your specialised knowledge and skills in Educational Neuroscience. To do this, you will identify an educational issue in your workplace and design an intervention to address the identified issue. In your capstone project, you will demonstrate how your intervention is planned in a methodologically rigorous and ethically informed way. Using evidence-based research, and synthesising your learning from Educational Neuroscience, you will show how and why your planned intervention in your project is likely both theoretically and practically to have a positive impact on achievement and wellness of the learners with whom you work.

Each 12-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.
|1. Written Assessment||20%|
|2. Project (applied)||80%|
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
