Research Expectations As Masters students, you are required to engage in research as per the Australia Quality Framework (AQF) guidelines. Two specific requirements need to be considered. Students need to demonstrate “a body of knowledge that includes the understanding of recent developments in a discipline and/or area of professional practice, and Students must demonstrate “knowledge of research principles and methods applicable to a field of work and/or learning”. Each Masters Of Human Resource Management unit has a number of required weekly readings in terms of academic texts, journals and business publications that represent the appropriate body of knowledge and recent developments referred to by the AQF. In order to demonstrate the ability to engage in appropriate research, students should read and utilise these texts, journals, and publications. As Masters students, you are expected to research beyond this minimum standard through additional texts, journals and studies to demonstrate an ability to engage in independent research.
