This unit aims to provide students with a transformative experience working on a project that will develop a broad range of professional skills and attributes including teamwork, leadership, advanced communication, problem solving and global social responsibility. Students will work collaboratively to explore the role of technology and /or innovation in society, applying their academic knowledge in a real-world setting. Student groups will deliver an outcome for an industry or community partner, either within Australia or internationally. Students undertake a 2-4 week intensive field trip (or virtual study tour) during which they spend time in the relevant community / project context to develop cultural awareness, understand the local context and collect data relevant for the project. Students will undertake pre-trip workshops on campus to commence the project, set learning goals, develop specialist knowledge, and plan their field work. Post-trip students will undertake further on-campus workshops to complete the project and their personal portfolios.
