Project Planning and Investigative Research - (15 credits)

This module is designed to help students review or improve their professional practice. Students will operate with a high level of autonomy to work upon a work-based problem, and to apply knowledge and techniques at the forefront of their discipline in an area of professional practice. They will be required to evaluate critically current scholarship and work-based practices and to use their knowledge to either: a) provide a critical review of a work-based problem and suggest possible ways forward, or b) implement and investigate novel and creative solutions to a problem. Students will identify suitable projects and problems within their sector. Writtle University College may be able to guide students towards suitable projects, depending on availability. The work carried out in this module can be linked to research to be conducted for the Dissertation.
