Description

In this subject students work on a project with global dimensions that is beyond the scope of individuals or single disciplines to address. Students work closely with stakeholders from a local business, non-profit, charity or community organisation, and use research principles to gain insights from a variety of perspectives on a complex scenario. Students work in teams to design methods and practices and incorporate technologies and data to model scenarios and create responses that can be prototyped. In doing so, the subject explores how global challenges can be tackled at a local level, and how to scale projects beyond local contexts to have wider impact.
