This subject contains a 40 days Compulsory Workplace Learning component.
The Workplace learning (WPL) may be undertaken on and/or off campus at one or more veterinary enterprises, which is relevant to the selected discipline of the student to allow advanced professional practice training and achievement of the learning objectives of the subject. The duration of the WPL is variable, depending on the discipline and negotiated between the candidate and supervisor: the maximum duration of WPL will be 40 days (i.e. a maximum of 50% of the allocated time for the 32 point subject of 560-640 hrs: the subject workload hours aligns with the CSU Subject Outlines policy of 140-160 hrs/8 pts). The WPL is designed for candidates to develop advanced cognitive and technical skills in the integration of a substantial body of theory and knowledge into the context of professional practice and development of expert communication skills for dissemination of new insights to the profession. The WPL will underpin student development of, and capacity for, systematic and critical understanding of complex fields of learning for the advancement of research-led and evidence-based professional practice.
