Seeing, Thinking and Doing PACE Internationally - PACE360

This unit offers students new ways of seeing, thinking and doing PACE in an international context by providing an opportunity for students to engage with an international professional or community partner and learn through participation in a variety of activities. Examples include group community development projects run through PACE International or independently sourced international activities.

The unit prepares students to experience cross-cultural contexts and gain a greater awareness of issues of power, wealth, ethical practice, multiple perspectives that operate within a complex set of economic, political, environmental and cultural dynamics shaping how we see, think and do. Through a range of modules on reflective and ethical practice, development and poverty, students are challenged to think more deeply about their own assumptions and perspectives and to recognise different ways of knowing, seeing, doing and being. It also equips students with a range of practical skills through the development of graduate capabilities and professional skills, and knowledge of risk, health and safety in an international context. Using these modules and the experiences of our international PACE partners, this unit prepares and challenges students to make the most of their experience and reflect on their role in contributing to partner objectives and their own learning.
