Learning in the workplace activities that will be included in this Unit of Study are: Assignment – Students will be presented with a practical project which they will be required to solve in a working team environment. This Unit of Study will be delivered as e. G. 2 hours lecture and 1 hour tutorial per eek. It is expected that you will spend at least ten hours per week studying this Unit of Study (including lecture and tutorial time). This time should be made up of reading, research, working on exercises and group work. In periods where you need to complete assignments or prepare for tests, the workload may be greater. Victoria University’s Graduate Capabilities are generic skills that all students should possess at graduation.
These skills are in addition to the specific knowledge and skills divided into five levels (for undergraduates) and will be achieved progressively with increasing levels of sophistication. A full description of the Graduate Capabilities can be found in the IV Graduate Capabilities policy pages 7-8. This unit of study contributes to development of these Graduate Capabilities in a number of ways, with emphasis on financial literacy. Table 1 offers examples of how the teaching and learning activities in this unit and the assessment tasks correspond to each Graduate Capability. The shaded boxes are capabilities on which this unit of study particularly focuses. Table 1: Unit of Study Graduate Capabilities Graduate Capability Level Description of Graduate Capability
