Unit Content

Curriculum Objective

A capstone subject enables students to reflect on, and apply, the transformation they have undertaken throughout their course of study. This subject requires students to critically evaluate and reflect on their post-graduate experience, synthesising, and applying their learning gained throughout the course to design a scholarly project.

The project may be situated within the student’s school / educational context. Examples may include a new teacher induction process, an approach to school-wide professional learning, a new curriculum / pedagogy initiative, and a process to encourage school association membership. The outworking of this project will involve creative and cohesive communication to a wider audience.

(N.B. The scholarly project will be designed within the study timeframe but may not be fully executed.)


  • LO1. Demonstrate advanced knowledge of the key biblically-informed insights and philosophical understandings that have emerged from the post-graduate experience.
