LING 7009 - Directed Study in Linguistics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2019

Directed Study in Linguistics provides the opportunity for students to undertake a specific project in the coursework component of their postgraduate studies. This may be an individual project which is supervised one-to-one by a Linguistics staff member. The specific study is discussed with a staff member and the staff member offers guidance and support as the project develops. Meetings between the student and the staff member are periodic and at the request of the student or the staff member. The staff member may set semester milestones and timelines for the student to meet as part of the course. In another scenario the student may engage with the course content of the undergraduate Linguistics capstone course, whilst enrolled in the Directed Study in Linguistics course. The course coordinator will accept the student as auditing the course and the supervisor of the student will adjust the assignment tasks to meet postgraduate expectations. A Linguistics staff member will take responsibility for the assessment component of the course.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
