Participation and Community Engagement in Human Sciences - FOHS300

This unit provides an opportunity for students to engage with the community through a variety of activities. Examples might include individual and group activities with an international, regional or local focus on public-sector agencies, professional bodies, companies, industry partners and not-for-profit organisations. The unit promotes learning through participation with community partners as well as the development of graduate capabilities and professional skills. Students will be encouraged to apply theory learnt through their degree to real-world situations. Student learning will be facilitated through orientation and induction activities, scaffolding for skill and knowledge development and debriefing; supported throughout by rigorous academic assessment. The unit will have a particular emphasis on working with communities, and developing collaboration and leadership capacities.

This unit is a designated PACE unit and all enquiries regarding enrolment should be made with the unit convenor no later than 6 weeks before commencement of the study period.
