Learning and Teaching Activities
For the online streams - seminars will be conducted on Zoom.
For the face-to-face streams - seminars will be conducted face-to-face on campus.
If you have chosen a campus based class (your class in eStudent has a physical location) this class will be held online for the first two weeks of session due to a current NSW Government order as at Jul 14, 2021. Further advice will be provided to you (eg a Zoom link) so you can participate in that class online for the first two weeks before we return to Campus in Week 3.
When the public health order has ended, face-to-face streams will return to be face-to-face on campus, and you are expected to attend the rest of the session physically.
If you have already chosen an online class for the whole session (your class in eStudent has no physical location) you do not have to do anything - your classes will be online from Weeks 01 - 13.
If you want to change from a class returning to Campus in Week 3 to a class that will be taught online for the whole session you need to do the following:
- Login to eStudent and unregister from class you no longer want to attend
- Register for your online class in eStudent
Registering in a seminar in your timetable is your commitment to attend every week:
You will need to commit to your timetable for the entire session (semester). 80% of your grade will depend on work done during seminars in teams. Your timetabled seminar slot is where you will be actively learning during class with your lecturer and your peers.
This unit cannot be completed asynchronously given that we are assessing the learning outcomes of Teamwork, Employability, and Global Issues.
If you are unable to commit to your weekly timetable - you are strongly advised to un-enroll from this unit.
You will be placed in teams, where scaffolded team tasks will be worked through during each week's seminar. These scaffolded tasks ultimately work towards your Capstone Project which is a highly-weighted assessment component.
In other words, non-attendance at seminars will jeopardise both your individual component and the group component of the Capstone Project.
You may have 1 or 2 absences from seminars during the session, which is fine so long as you let your team know about it, and commit to catching up with the team as soon as possible within a reasonable amount of time, and constantly communicate with your team to keep up-to-date.
Communicating and keeping up with your team during class and at least twice during the week is an expectation of this unit.

Teaching and Learning Strategy
The unit is designed as a capstone unit. A capstone unit is designed to bring all your knowledge together to solve a problem.
There is no new content in the unit - rather a presentation of frameworks to consolidate all your content learnt in your degree so far.
This is a final year unit of study which integrates the material and skills presented across the degree.
Students will be placed in mixed-major teams to solve real-world problems.
These real-world problems will revolve around the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Student will address how commerce and business can play their part in achieving these goals.
Students will construct an artefact that integrates all their learning, as well as demonstrate an empathy & appreciation for other disciplines.
Students will write a reflective report about how their own major is an integral part of the puzzle in the diverse world of commerce.
Students will demonstrate agility by dealing with shocks that occur to the economy and responding to these effectively.
Students will demonstrate excellence by presenting their projects online, ready to be showcased to the job market
