About this Unit
This project-based unit offers students a chance to learn, negotiate and practise change-making skills in, and for, our University, Western Sydney University. At the heart of this unit is student partnership, curriculum co-creation, and an invitation for students to be involved in improving the educational experience at Western. Working in groups and alongside a university mentor, students will have an opportunity to contribute genuine solutions to an authentic education challenge that might be (a) commissioned by senior staff of the University; (b) intended to support students’ aspirations to become a student leader; or (c) offers students a chance to undertake a project that advances their existing student leader or representative role. By choosing this elective unit, students not only receive credit for the partnership work they undertake, the University will have a new way of involving students in its decision-making processes. This is a unit intended to sharpen students’ analytical skill-set and provide a taste of what it's like to operate as a change-maker inside a large and complex institution. This unit is recommended for all students, regardless of discipline.
