This course is available so that senior students can pursue, under supervision, topics that are not covered in the regular curriculum that will significantly increase their knowledge of some aspect of computer science.
The activities in the course will be some combination of lectures, reading, writing and project work, as appropriate to the topic. These activities will be specified, for each enrolled student, using a Research School of Computer Science `Independent Study Contract'.

Learning Outcomes

Learning Outcomes will be determined for each individual student and recorded in an 'Independent Study Contract' at the beginning of the course.

Indicative Assessment

An appropriate combination of written report, exercises, examination and seminar presentations. This will be set out in the 'Independent Study Contract' for each student at the start of each course.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

Students are expected to spend 10-12 hours each week on this course. Contact hours will be determined for each individual student and recorded in an 'Independent Study Contract' at the beginning of the course.
