Timetabled Learning Activities
Unit Learning Experiences This unit is conducted under the supervision of an academic staff member and health care industry site facilitator and is designed to further develop students' scholarship skills. While students are expected to demonstrate high levels of organisational skills and be able to work independently and in a timely manner, supervisors and students will work closely and meet regularly to plan, develop and implement an industry identified project.
Other Learning Experiences A workplace-based placement will be negotiated by the student in consultation with the lecturer. The placement will be conducted over an equivalent of 2 days per week for the 14 teaching weeks of the semester.
Assessment The assessment component of this unit includes a Project Proposal (30%), Organisational Report (60%) and Oral Presentation (10%). The facilitator and supervisor will provide regular feedback on placement performance and written work during all phases of the internship to facilitate the student's learning and health industry experience.
