Refinements to the literature review, and progress reports on data gathering, analysis and synthesis are presented in work-in-progress seminars. These seminars are designed to provide feedback for students to ensure the quality, integrity and coherence of individual research projects and their relationship to the identified Topic for a particular cohort.
The Topic is developed on the basis of the identified professional interests of the students, and its strategic relevance to their employing and sponsoring institution. It is capable of being investigated from a number of perspectives. The EdD research project constitutes the major learning undertaken by each doctoral student. It will have individual integrity in relation to the perspective taken to The Topic, while at the same time have demonstrated conceptual and research links to other individual projects in the cohort.

Special assessment requirements
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
