Cradle Coast, Launceston, Hobart
This unit creates a practical awareness of e-enabled agribusiness and the use of technology in areas such as precision agriculture, livestock tracking and food traceability. You will explore the concepts of innovation including the innovation diffusion process and observe the difference between product and process innovation. The unit will prepare you to evaluate the opportunities technologies and e-business can provide new and existing agri-businesses.
This unit also incorporates learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you can develop the skills, knowledge, and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.
You will be introduced to:
- a range of methods, tools, techniques, and approaches to practice
- principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy, and leadership in real world scenarios
- reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations
- ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
