IMER900Immersion Experience Critical Reflection
Unit overview and content
This unit provides students with the opportunity to critically reflect on an approved immersion experience that they have undertaken (such as a pilgrimage, study tour, or volunteer work) under the guidance of an expert in the relevant discipline area (such as theology, biblical studies, leadership, religious education, or governance and canon law). The precise focus of the unit will be determined through discussion between the student and the relevant expert. The generic focus of the unit will be on students utilising their experience as a foundation for critical reflection in dialogue with substantial research, following the assessment schedule prescribed below.
10 hours per week for 12 week semester, comprised of:
- 9 hours per week of independent study.
- 12 hours (approximately) across the semester of guided study in dialogue with the supervisor.
Guided reading; independent research.
At the Institute we use a range of assessment tasks, including essays, research papers, online posts, critical reflections, projects and praxis exercises. Within a unit of study each set of assessment tasks is designed as an integral part of your learning experience. These tasks vary across units and programs. All assessment tasks are aligned to the Australian Qualifications Framework level appropriate for graduate awards.
