HLB300 Independent Study

This unit provides the opportunity to substantively explore a topic or subject of personal academic interest within your discipline area. It enables you to extend your knowledge and understanding of a topic area that is not otherwise available as a formal unit of study within the course, and your skills in knowledge development and knowledge management. This is a self-directed learning opportunity and prior to enrolling in the unit you will need to organise an academic supervisor with whom you will discuss your proposed study, its learning outcomes and any issues related to its successful completion.
