Description of module content:

Much of the module content will be specific to the topic selected by you and guided by your supervisor. Teaching includes: 1/ Lectures and seminars on the research process and on the specific tools and frameworks employed to help you manage your project (i.e. dissertation research or practice-led research in music), 2/ Group tutorials where you will discuss your work with your peers and your supervisor, 3/ One-to-one tutorials in which you will bring specific problems and questions to your supervisor as well as receiving feedback on formative milestones designed to give you structure throughout the project, and 4/ Work-in-progress presentations and forums where you will critique, inspire, and encourage your peers. The majority of the work on this module will be driven by you, and you will be empowered to work independently, critically, and innovatively as a learner and creator.
