2021 unit offering information will be available in November 2020
This is the second unit of a pair of units (FOR03169, and this unit FOR03170), in which students work on a forestry management issue or research topic. Students select a suitable project, which they complete under the one-on-one supervision of an academic supervisor. In this second unit, students undertake the project as described in the project proposal submitted in the first unit. They present the results of their project in a formal report submitted at the end of the session. These two units prepare students for the transition into professional life.
The Minor Thesis units require students to work on an individual topic of their choosing, under the individual supervision of one academic. There is, therefore, no syllabus. The specific content of the student’s work will be discussed with the supervisor, and will be defined in the project proposal submitted as part of the assessment in FOR03169.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
