Students undertake research and inquiry (students learning in research mode). As well as dissertations, projects and group projects which are grounded in research training, this could include:
- linking these to staff research projects;
- providing opportunities for suitable students to work on staff research projects during the vacation;
- assessing students in ways that mirror the discipline research processes – for example, require students to write up their assignments as for a peer-reviewed journal. As part of this the students could peer-review each other’s submissions before the final submission, these could be presented at a student conference and selected submissions could be published in a student research journal.
