About this Unit
In this unit, the learning experience combines civic engagement with training, and personal and scholarly reflection. Service learning focuses on the application and development of a broad range of knowledges, capacities and skills in the context of voluntary effort to benefit the community. For example, depending on the site selected, students may: extend their capacity to communicate and work effectively in culturally diverse contexts; gain a better understanding of social inclusion and exclusion in Australia or overseas, or; become more confident about their personal and professional capacity to contribute to the well-being of others or protection of the natural environment. The unit may be taken in Australia or overseas  through one of Western’s Partners such as CISaustralia  completed individually or as part of a group and in any session of study. For further information please contact the unit coordinator.
