This course will enable the student to identify their program objectives and will focus on the development of a Learning Plan, based on their Learning Portfolio, which will outline the complementary studies and workplace-based project(s) to be taken in order to fulfil these objectives. Discussion within the workplace will help to ascertain the time available to undertake the workplace-based project(s) within normal working time. The workplace-based project(s) will be outlined, an appropriate unit size for each project will be determined and methods of demonstrating contextualized learning experiences and augmented expertise will be identified. Students will also show how the project(s) may benefit the workplace. They will also show how they will explore and communicate the relevance of literature related to specific fields of interest. It is expected that there will be considerable negotiation between the student and the USQ Adviser to ensure that the Learning Plan will clearly outline a cohesive, relevant learning pathway.
