Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

In this unit students will work on the relationship between the designer, research and design for professional practice. Students will engage in high-level design projects in collaboration with external stakeholders as a means of developing design solutions that respond to users, business, industry and issues of sustainability and their effects on society. Professional ethics and responsibility are also integral to this unit and projects. Students will demonstrate the integration of their academic and disciplinary knowledge and skills through significant projects and/or exhibitions. They will reflect on the value and outputs of their learning through their e-portfolio; and they will demonstrate their understanding of professionalism and career-readiness through disciplinary initiatives.

This unit may be co taught with specialisation units (11053 Design for High Complexity, 11066 Experiential Graphic Design or 11060 Designing for Data informed user experience).
