This subject allows students to undertake a substantial work placement in an organisation with international connections, and in a discipline and employment area related to either their Bachelor of International Studies degree and/or professional degree. Students independently undertake small-scale research about, or in other words investigate, an aspect about workplace culture in the organisation or sector in which they will undertake their placement. This might include issues such as cultural difference, intercultural communication, cultural systems, cultural hegemonies, cultural change and the like. Drawing on experiential learning and theory-informed critique, skills to be developed include: researching cultural phenomena as they manifest in professional practice, building research-informed arguments, reflecting critically on practice and work organisations, communicating and learning online, and presenting small-scale research findings.
