The unit allows the student to tailor the content to suit his/her learning needs . For example, new technology or procedures may be introduced into the workplace, necessitating changes in the knowledge, skills and attributes of the student. The student must initially present a proposal to the unit of study (UoS) coordinator. Upon preliminary approval, a supervisor will be appointed and a study plan and assessments will be agreed upon to achieve the desired educational outcomes. The unit of study may comprise, for instance; a literature review covering the development and applications of a new technology; the development of a research plan and ethics application; it may involve specific workplace experience and analysis; or it may comprise a combination of these elements.
