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.

The Creative Industries requires graduates to work within a project environment and respond to clients in an ethical, professional and efficient manner.
This unit provides students with the understanding and practical application of the attributes, principles, skills and documentation required in the planning, management, organisation and administration of commercial projects. It continues learning approaches from previous core units, again encouraging the analysis of project management principles through research into exemplar real world projects and applying these to student-generated concepts. The unit also progresses the student towards the academic independence required in the two final Creative Project units related to their major.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Analyse the key aspects of project management in a creative environment;

2. Identify and use appropriate tools to develop a project management plan;

3. Produce industry-standard planning documentation in a creative context;

4. Assemble and integrate requirements for funding proposals in the creative environment; and

5. Apply communication skills in a professional or academic context.
