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.

Syllabus

The goal of an IS internship is to provide work experience that is of value to the organisation and also augments the student's formal IT education. The IT industry, including the professional body and employers, clearly recognises the advantage of students gaining practical experience to complement their formal education before entering the profession. Students will use the internship opportunity to apply the theories and concepts they have learnt at University to real-life situations. Students will be able to use this experience to reflect on their field of study, as well as develop their professional and personal skills.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate practical experience in the tasks, roles, techniques, tools and skills associated with information sciences; and

2. Evaluate and report on the relative merits of alternative approaches and their application in the field of information sciences.
