MCGY5111: Creative Work Seminar 1

This Unit of Study offers students a scaffolded experience that will help them to develop research skills and ability to embed, articulate and demonstrate research through and in the form of a research performance or composition. This would normally be composition or performance-based research output related to the student's overarching research topic. Following the project's development through the semester, the student will present the work undertaken in an appropriate format at the end of semester for formative feedback. Students will attend the weekly multidisciplinary Creative Work Seminar which will provide regular opportunities to present creative work research and to explore and hone presentation skills.
