Students in the Bachelor of Health Science complete this ‘capstone’ unit, which is designed to assess course outcomes and graduate attributes, at the end of their course. In a small multidisciplinary team, students undertake an applied problem-based project for a client who may be real or imagined. The unit requires students to integrate and synthesise prior knowledge and learning between the Bachelor of Health Science core sequence and their majors, to connect and integrate their learning for use in the real world. They are supported in this by learning about project management, team work and professional communication, including report writing. Projects require self-management, teamwork and independence as learners. The capstone is designed to enhance graduates' university-to-work transition needs (or undergraduate-to-higher-degree needs). The final assessment requires students to produce explicit evidence of their graduate capabilities.
