By undertaking a scholarly piece of work, this unit gives you the opportunity to consolidate, extend and apply your skills in an area relevant to your field of study. Throughout your research process, you will develop the necessary skills to plan, implement and disseminate researching findings.
In this unit you will be conducting a systematic review of the literature to address your chosen research question. As a 24 point unit that spans two teaching periods (HLQ638-1 and HLQ638-2), at its conclusion you will be invited to attend a one-day Gerontology Leadership at the QUT, Brisbane campus at the end of the second teaching period. The conference will allow you the opportunity to share your research findings, hear from keynote speakers and network with leaders in Gerontology.
