Description This unit of study has two aims: to develop students\\\' skills and ability to work effectively in a team and to introduce students to the process of innovation in an organisational context. This experiential unit of study will involve students working in small groups on developing, testing, prototyping and pitching an innovative business idea or concept. In working through the innovation process students will attend innovation workshops conducted by a corporate partner and will work closely with a mentor from a professional organisation. At the end of the program students will pitch their business proposals to a panel of leading industry experts. To support their teamwork, students will be introduced to skills associated with effective teamwork and will have the opportunity to practice these skills and reflect on the experience of working in a small team on a real life project.
