Content

The Internship unit consists of a placement in a mutually arranged, supervised position where students will ideally undertake a project in the workplace and report on it both to the host organisation and the faculty supervisor. This is not a placement solely for experiential learning. The methodologies that need to be utilised in the project are dependent upon the type of placements.

 

In this particular unit students will be expected to use one or more of the following research approaches:
  • naturalistic research;
  • content analysis;
  • development and implementation of surveys;
  • data collection and basic data analysis;
  • field research;
  • secondary analysis of data for reports or other tasks.

Assessment

A written report of 5000 words consisting of five parts:

  • engagement-profile on placement organisation 700 words 15%;

  • research methods employed-summary 1100 words 20%;
