Health/Research Placement - MEDI308

This unit follows an enactivist approach to skill development where students learn how to use new knowledge to improve their work or other life situation. Its mission is to prepare MQ students to become lifelong learners in a connected world and be confident in up-skilling themselves using informal learning opportunities (face-to-face and online). The unit provides work-integrated learning experience in a health-related context. Placements will be undertaken in a range of settings according to each student's professional and academic interests, and career aspirations. All placements and associated activities will be negotiated using a learning contract (ensuring a mutually shared benefit between our students and the placement partner). The unit motivates students to explore and complete relevant professional skills development courses in an area relevant to their placement or career aspiration. All students in the unit will articulate their personal story, write a resume and cover letter writing, conduct job search, interviewing, and professional networking. Students will keep an active learning portfolio throughout the unit where they will document and reflect on their experiences and lessons they have learned. They will exit the unit having a developed a professional learning portfolio which they will showcase in front of a panel of industry and community experts.
