This unit is the first of four units where your learning will be scaffolded towards planning and producing a substantial piece of scholarship relevant to your practice or discipline area. Types of scholarship you may ultimately choose to produce include any of the following: research proposal; literature review; systematic literature review; policy analysis; education/training package; inquiry submission; funding application; evaluation of an intervention or article for publication. In this unit you will study foundational scholarship skills to assist you to produce a plan for a significant scholarly output. You will explore worldviews, values, and ethics that underpin all scholarship. You will examine the concepts of axiology, ontology, epistemology, and reflect on their application to your own and others’ professional practice and scholarship. Students should not enrol in this unit unless they have completed 48 credit points of study in their relevant post-graduate course.

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%).
