Credit points: 3
Year: 2012
Student Contribution Band: Band 1

Using a range of media and advanced communication skills, students develop and present, in public, a major seminar presentation which encapsulates their research findings to date and how this contributes to new knowledge. Students present their seminar as a cohort under the banner of the School of Creative Arts Honours Seminar Series. In addition, under the supervision of the Honours coordinator, students work as a community of reflective creative practitioners in order to enhance each student's honours project and research trajectory by identifying the potential for on-going research projects, commercialisation opportunities or community and industry engagement strategies.
