    In this capstone unit, students plan and execute a significant project in knowledge or information studies. Students will define a research question or professional problem based on the application of appropriate theoretical frameworks. They are expected to negotiate an appropriate project with the unit convener and, in some cases, with a host organisation. In addition, students will engage in online forums with the unit convener to discuss the progress of their project and present their study in an academic forum. Students are strongly advised to begin planning their projects before the semester begins and consulting the unit convener.

    On the successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Demonstrate mastery of theoretical knowledge and the ability to reflect critically on theory and professional practice;
