Content

Environmental Science is an increasingly global discipline, and as such it is desirable for students to engage in their discipline in a more globally relevant fashion.  This unit, Global Environmental Placement, requires students to locate a course-related international organisation in which they secure and satisfactorily complete a placement. The international environmental placement is a situated learning activity that provides students with the opportunity to apply and develop their learning about globalization, international cultural issues and the role of cultural diversity in how environmental solutions are approached. The integration of the placement with academic learning will allow students to help solve authentic environmental problems or address real issues faced by organisations operating in the international environmental sphere.  Placements are for a minimum two-weeks or for a negotiated period to a minimum of 80 working hours.

Assessment

Host organisation evaluation 30%, reflective learning report 40%, placement symposium presentation 30%
