The Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) international internship course provides an opportunity for practical application of disciplinary theory, skills, and knowledge prior to and during your international internship experience. This course is open to students who have already secured their internship placement and to students who are seeking an international placement. Availability of placements, associated travel and accommodation costs, and student support whilst on international work placement will vary. Half of this course will take place in the classroom and half the course takes place in the international workplace where you can put that knowledge to use. Course Aims: - To develop an ability to evaluate the relationship between discipline knowledge as it applies to an international workplace. - To build understanding of multicultural perspectives and ways of being, including but not limited to Maori and Pacific perspective. - To build employability competencies that are reflective of international industry standards. In PACE350, you will: - Spend a designated period abroad working on a project for an international business or a community organisation. - Carry out ongoing personal and professional development assignments. - Conduct a project that links your disciplinary knowledge to the knowledge acquired through your international internship practice. - Present and share your experiences with the other students in your cohort.
