Student Leader Project ZAL201


In this unit you will lead a project that enables you to employ a range of skills including project management, communication, data analysis, problem-solving, research, and stakeholder engagement. You will work closely with relevant stakeholders such as academic mentors, student association staff and student representatives, industry stakeholders and peers to inform, design, deliver, and evaluate your project. Your student-led project operationalises project management tools, practices and responsibilities around the needs of your chosen organisation. Relevant projects will have a primary aim of creating and/or building positive impact on your student experience. Your project will adopt an 'students as partners' approach to include your unique perspective, and challenge you to leverage this throughout your project.
