This unit delivers identical content and learning objectives to SMED5322 Service Learning Unit 3, but is completed with a rural service provider.
Students are able to (1) apply prior learning about cultural humility and stakeholder management to effectively monitor their own function in a service; (2) understand civic responsibility by providing ongoing service to a service organisation; and (3) apply service learning and scholarly principles by collaboratively applying an evidence-based approach to a service issue.
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) professional behaviour and attendance rating; (2) a portfolio-based assessment; and (3) written assignment—project deliverables. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
