You will need to access substantial learning resources and experiences in CloudDeakin (Deakin’s online learning environment). Compliance with the Standards in computing, connectivity and student capability are a condition on your enrolment.
Students have an opportunity to gain professional work experience with an approved host organisation for a minimum of 100 hours and a maximum of 120. Students will learn in, and with, the organisation, critically reflecting on their placement, their graduate learning outcomes and employability competencies through a number of assessments including a placement portfolio.
The placement is designed to further the interests of both the student and the host organisation. It is not about work experience but rather about improving employability skills including communication skills, team work, self-management and lifelong learning competencies.
