Subject outline

University-wide, multi-faculty and multi-campus subject designed to cater for and incorporate the aims and objectives of 'The Big Idea' project / competition via team driven tasks, projects, presentations, and asessment outcomes. The subject aims to join together three prime (academic) outcomes - (1) providing opportunity for a multi-discipline team of university students, via direct engagement with a segment of their local university community, to complete a community-based business-related project, (2) present their findings from that engagement to a panel of internal university / external community reviewers, and (3) then gain full university credit towards their respective degree for that engagement
