About this Unit
Unit 300913 (Field Project 1) and the associated unit 300914 (Field Project 2) are designed as 'capstone' units of study for the Bachelor of Natural Science degree. They draw together the skills acquired in previous years of the degree course and apply them in the context of a year-long research project exploring a real world problem on behalf of an industry, government or community agency client. Over the year, the student will develop skills in scoping, planning, implementing, reporting on the research project; reflecting on what has been learned in the context of their personal and professional development and how this can be used in future career planning. In this Field Project 1 unit the focus is on developing skills in designing an appropriate research project in collaboration with the industry client, contextualising the problem and appropriate research methods in the academic literature, developing and implementing a pilot study to test the proposed research methods, and planning ahead for collecting, organising ad analysing field data and reporting the results to the client in the second unit - Field Project 2.
