The Higher Education Project units are designed to bring about an increased awareness in teaching practice and improve student learning. In HED5032 Higher Education Project: Data gathering and Analysis candidates will be involved in conducting the negotiated project according to the project proposal completed in HED5031. The aim of these units is to enable candidates to choose any area of teaching and learning in higher education and conduct a negotiated project that will enable them to investigate and improve their own teaching practice.


On successful completion of this unit, participants should be able to:

  1. apply appropriate pedagogical methodologies to gather and analysis data to investigate an area of their own teaching practice;
  2. report on how the outcomes of the project may be used to inform their own teaching practice and improve student learning;
  3. evaluate the project outcomes in relation to developments from both pedagogy and discipline-based research.
