SDNY 3375: Global Internship Course: Sydney

3-6 Credits

3 Credit Course Option: The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship (and living abroad experience) while supported by academic in-class and online educational sessions to further develop their personal and professional skills while earning academic credit. GIC students also partake in out-of-class guided and self-guided activities and excursions that have been devised to enable students to become more comfortable with, and knowledgeable of, their internship locations/neighbourhoods. Field studies vary depending on location and may also include a focus on, for example, corporate social responsibility and sustainability. The GIC fits in with CAPA’s philosophy and practice of enabling students to learn about the social and cultural context of their internship placement and the host region and country, as well as other GIC themes, through comparative global analysis. At times, this analysis will be facilitated through a small selection of CAPA Masterclasses given by leading professionals from a diverse range of fields. The in-class active learning approach gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyze theories and models of work, organizational behavior, and management in a cross-cultural context. A variety of teaching and learning activities will be used, for example: lecture, workshop, discussion, informal and formal presentations, self-guided and guided research, and mock (recorded) interviews. The assessment mechanisms are all designed to support learning, using the internship and living abroad experience as a vehicle. Above all, the in-class CAPA sessions give students the opportunity to listen to individual experiences, compare and contrast activities 6 Credit Course Option The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship (and living abroad experience) while supported by academic in-class and on-line educational sessions to further develop their personal and professional skills while earning academic credit.

The in-class active learning approach gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyze theories and models of work, organizational behavior and management in a cross-cultural context such as Australia's historical place within a pan Asian market.

The assessment mechanisms are all designed to support learning, using the internship and living abroad experience as a vehicle. Above all, the in-class and supplementary on-line CAPA sessions give students the opportunity to listen to individual experiences, compare and contrast activities with others, and consider the experience in terms of their personal and professional development – at the beginning we focus on self-reflection, and at the end of this process we challenge each student to focus on self-projection. At its core, GIC provides an opportunity for students to unpack, synthesis and articulate (the value of) their learning.
