Work and Social Change (WORK2225)
UNIT OF STUDY
How people relate to work and organisations changes with the society around it. The aims of this unit are to analyse the way contemporary work has changed through three significant themes/modules. The first theme or module analyses how social change has shaped the nature of work and identity at both collective and individual levels. The second theme examines how institutions outside work, such as the interface of work and family, and unpaid work shapes contemporary work and business. The third module analyses remote and borderless work in Australia and overseas. Each of these modules will culminate in a workshop that debates the contemporary and future implications of these transformations within and around work, business and society.
