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.

This unit will introduce key theories, methods and case studies relevant to cultural activation, including methods for contextual research, community consultation, co-design and co-production. Students will form multi-disciplinary teams to analyse a complex cultural problem and to design and implement a creative response or solution for the cultural activation of, for instance, a place, building or space, an archive or collection, or community asset or event (eg performance, festival, market, etc). Creative producers (eg digital media, writers, film producers, artists, makers and designers) will collaborate with cultural specialists from diverse backgrounds (eg heritage, museums, conservation, Indigenous and global studies). The unit will provide students with access to a real world cultural place, issue or scenario. It may include national and international field trips and partnerships, and will embed mentorship from industry and cultural leaders.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Work effectively and collaboratively in a team to develop and implement a creative response to an issue or scenario;
2. Apply and understand a range of methods and approaches to contextual research, community consultation, co-design and co-production; and
3. Demonstrate a high degree of cultural competency and sensitivity in working collaboratively and designing culturally appropriate, creative responses.
