This is the third research project subject within the professional honours major, and is the second of a two-subject chain with SL4200. Students will continue to work on their research project commenced in SL3200 and SL4200. Within this subject chain students will work in small, self-directed groups (with supervision), to complete a research project relevant to contemporary speech pathology. In enacting their research plan, students will be required to demonstrate a solid understanding of their research methodology as well as strong organisational and planning skills and showing independence and autonomy. Students will consolidate their knowledge on their research topic area by undertaking a critical analysis of the literature. Students will also collect, collate, and analyse research data in order to derive robust research findings. Students will then critically examine their research findings in relation to existing knowledge on their research topic, and analyse the relevance of these findings to speech pathology theory and practice. Students will present their research findings as a scholarly manuscript, and orally.
Students must achieve at least 50% in each weighted assessment item, must pass all hurdle tasks, and must achieve at least 50% overall in order to pass the subject.
