Professional Practice in Accessible Communication - LING982

This industry-based internship unit provides MAC students an opportunity to gain experience in the workplace. It promotes learning through participation in industry through which graduate capabilities and professional skills will be developed. Students will be expected to apply theories and principles learnt throughout their degree to real-world situations. For the major part of the unit, students work with both an industry supervisor and an academic supervisor to complete an Accessible Communication project. Project topics will be agreed upon among the student, the program convenor and the industry partner. Student learning will be facilitated through orientation and induction activities, scaffolding for skill and knowledge development and debriefing, appropriate rigorous assessments, and their actual work experience with the industry partner. Assessment will be based on a combination of written reports and presentations. The students are expected to complete their internship over the course of a semester.
