Content

This unit allows students to develop knowledge and skills through experiential learning. The learning occurs through programs and projects that are available in locations external to Deakin. Subject to approval from the Unit Chair, students may undertake the unit through participation in an appropriate program, such as:

  • Internships and practical placements in Australia or internationally. This may include UNESCO, ICOMOS or other internships, archaeological site excavations, or placements in professionally-staffed museum or heritage organisations. Internships and practical placements involve working on one or more projects, as agreed with the host institution. Students are required to spend a minimum of 10 working days on the placement. This can be undertaken full-time (e.g. over a minimum of two weeks) or on a part-time basis.

  • In-country study tours. Such tours are conducted by Deakin staff, usually during the Australian summer. Recent tours have been to China and Laos.

  • In-country educational programs. Student participation in these programs is coordinated by Deakin staff. The programs provide study opportunities in conjunction with partner educational institutions outside Australia.

  • Other projects or programs that may arise from time to time.

Assessment
