Engaging in teacher-led research provides students with an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills, while also developing leadership capacity in a curriculum area of interest. Documentation of the research project to be undertaken in this unit of study will articulate the development and/or change of educational practice relevant to the student's practice during their EDEC4012 Internship. The research will also inform some improvement of, or significant development in teaching practice in the early childhood setting in which the internship is being undertaken. Projects will be developed in collaboration with the Supervising Teacher and/or Centre Director.
