This unit will be delivered online via Canvas and BlackBoard Collaborate. Students are encouraged to attend all planned classes to ensure they maximise their learning in this unit.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
Students may need to meet pre-placement requirements before undertaking a work integrated learning (WIL) activity. Pre-placement requirements are specific to the WIL activity, and to the location of the activity. Information on pre-placement requirements must be included in this section; refer to relevant state/territory legislation, and www.canberra.edu.au/placement for details.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves an internship.
This unit has pre-placement requirements (e.g. Working with Vulnerable People registration, immunisations, recording of relevant details in InPlace etc), which must be completed prior to commencement of your internship; refer to Placement Requirements
