Industry Project ZAA249

Introduction

In this unit you will engage in an industry-based project that enables you to employ a range of skills including applying discipline knowledge to practice, communication, analysis skills and problem-solving skills acquired throughout your Associate Degree. An industry project operationalises project management tools, practices and responsibilities around the needs of industry and how to improve outcomes by integrating a project concept into an existing organisational context. Suggested project topics may be derived from industry or relevant and appropriate proposals derived from your own workplace or industry.

In conjunction with the discipline theory, this unit builds on concepts of learning through practice in Year 1 of study by introducing you to more complex learning experiences.
You will be introduced to:
- discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
- concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
- the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
- the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice.
You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual.
