About this Unit
This unit is designed for high-achieving students enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Leadership or Advanced degrees. It examines sources of knowledge and how we learn. Students are supported to approach new knowledge as a journey of developing skills as independent, life-long, self-directed learners. Analysis of knowledge journeys of others, using creative enquiry, and Indigenous learning techniques, are key learning activities in the unit. A focus on knowledge and research journeys, rather than 'outcomes' alone, facilitates learning from mistakes in seeking solutions to real world problems. Fundamental research approaches will be considered and applied in the unit.
