Conceptualising student research in postgraduate coursework programs

Master’s level student research has been largely overlooked within the literature in comparison to its undergraduate and doctoral counterparts, but remains an important component of Master’s level study.  Exploring its role, purpose and value provides an opportunity to consider best practice pedagogies and approaches to assessment, and to share good practice.

The roundtable discussion will be led by Dr Lucy Hammond, who is an Associate Professor at University of Warwick and is a Visiting Educator with the Monash Warwick Alliance.

Points of discussion will include:

  • What constitutes research and/or scholarship at Master’s level?
  • The distinctiveness of Master’s level study
  • Role, purpose and value of Master’s level student research for different student groups/different disciplines/different study tracks
  • Similarities and differences between UK and Australian models of student research in taught Master’s programs
  • What pedagogies and assessment best support effective student research for taught Master’s students?

Lucy is Postgraduate Academic Lead for Student Experience at Warwick Medical School, and leads the Professional Project and Dissertation modules for all postgraduate taught students within the Medical School.
