This assessment requires you to submit an overview of your host organisation and the activities you are undertaking while there.
As with other assessments in this unit, there isn't an explicit word length.
This is a PASS/FAIL unit. The marks listed in the marking criteria are an indication only of your achievement.
The report should consist of:

2. Communicate an understanding of the relevance of legal and ethical issues related to your discipline
3. Work collaboratively in teams in the context of a workplace
3. Cognitive, technical and creative skills

This assessment requires that you give a 15 minute presentation about your learning experiences while at the host organisation.
You may base your presentation on aspects of your reflective e-portfolio.
You will be assessed on the following criteria:
In-class and a copy of the presentation via Moodle.
A reflective e-portfolio is a learning tool that enables you to accumulate evidence of your learning achievement. For this assessment you should reflect on your assigned daily activities and whether you met agreed outcomes.
In this unit we will use Mahara as the e-portfolio. Please refer to the unit Moodle site for more detailed instructions on how to use Mahara, including how to create a Secret URL.
Your e-portfolio is based on the tasks you perform at the host organisation. You should consider why those tasks helped you learn, what the learning experiences comprises of and academic references to support your claim to learning.
You should also relate your reflective activities to the unit learning outcomes.
Please see the Moodle site for some examples of reflective portfolios.
Entries are to be made in your portfolio on each occasion that an activity is undertaken. You should reflect on the activity undertaken, the outcome, whether you met agreed timelines and outcomes, any difficulties experienced and the learning you have gained.
Please see Moodle unit website for more specific marking criteria.
There is no explicit word length for this assessment as each of you will have different experiences as you interact with different people and environments.
Via Mahara, Moodle using your Secret URL.
4. Critically reflect on strength and weakness in knowledge and skills related both to your discipline and workplace experience.
This assessment is your final report on your learning journey at the internship organisation.
There is no explicit word length requirements but you must submit a report that allows your marker to fully understand what you learned and how this helped you to carry out your tasks. You should consider how the internship has assisted you in filling any knowledge gaps you may have felt you possessed.
You need to exercise your own judgment on this. When I was working in industry I wrote many report and requested my staff to do so as well. At no time was I ever/did I ever set a word limit as I was expected to address the report topic clearly, concisely while at the same time giving the details to inform others of the topic.
Having said that, I do not believe you can give enough detail for your overview assessment in one page, nor should you need 20 pages. Exercise your judgment to state what you need to and discuss it in enough detail so that we understand what you are doing.
This assessment is based on the feedback fro your internship organisation. You do not have to submit this assessment.
