Throughout the course students will develop an understanding of the EAP context, build on existing TESOL knowledge and skills to inform the development of EAP specific skills, apply methodologies that facilitate the effective teaching of writing, reading, listening and speaking skills for an academic context, employ technology-enhanced teaching techniques appropriate to the academic context, and engage in reflective and critical practice in order to develop professionally. The unit is delivered in conjunction with the Centre for English Teaching (CET) and involves workshops run by CET?s experienced English language teachers, lesson observations and teaching practicum with international students studying at the centre. Taken in in addition to Teaching English Internationally 1 and 2 (EDGU2000 and EDGU3000), this unit provides students with the background to teach English both in Australia and internationally in a range of English as a Second Language contexts.

The  description for the following unit has been updated:

CATE 2021 Contemporary Realism
Description: This unit explores links between contemporary art and culture, and the concept of realism. As a result of realism’s connections with philosophies of ‘the real’, and with the term ‘reality’, the concept of realism goes back centuries. However, the most immediate antecdents for contemporary art and culture are modernism and the avantgarde. Therefore in addition to art and culture since 1960, this unit of study addresses historical art dated from 1850 and recognises the nineteenth century art movement called Realism as a cornerstone of contemporary art.
In postmodernity, though, the role of mass media and new media in the social construction of the real becomes increasingly important. What, for example, is the relationship of the contemporary blog to documentary realism? Therefore Contemporary Realism is a unit that addresses high art and popular culture, and every artistic medium from painting to fictional film, documentary film, video, and animation. It acknowledges what Carol Martin calls, in the overview of her book Theatre of the Real (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), ‘the unparalleled construction of reality’ across all fields of representation, from the sciences to the  humanities, and in every practice of the visual and performing arts. It also acknowledges the view expressed by Julian Stallabrass in the overview of his edited book, Documentary (Whitechapel and MIT Press, 2013), that the current revival of the documentary in recent art is in part the result of ‘increasing attention to issues of injustice, violence and trauma’ in the twenty-first century.

The following unit has been added to the list of electives:

CAEL2082 On Location: Jewellery-Street & Gallery Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Karin Findeis Session: Semester 1 Classes: 3-week field trip in Europe and 1x3-hour studio class/week Assessment: travelogue (20%) and critical reviews (20%) and project (60%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day Note: Department permission required for enrolment.
Description: On Location: Jewellery in the Street and the Gallery focuses on material and significance in the processes of the conception and making of jewellery and how these appear in both contemporary and historical work. Within this you will engage with a range of contexts where jewellery appears including the street, the museum and the gallery. Accordingly, you will be introduced to the most contemporary work as well as historical pieces; will experience a range of means of presentation  from  formal  museum  to  low-tech  and  ephemeral exhibitions; will see work by emerging artists and the most respected and established makers. This unit takes an intensive approach to learning where students go into the field in Europe at the beginning of the semester and follow up with tutorial meetings with the lecturer while a final body of work is produced. Learning contexts include artist talks, gallery visits and seminars. Studio outcomes will be based on experience and research developed in the field. You will maintain record of your experiences, impressions and ideas in the form of a Travelogue which will become the key resource for developing a piece of work (or small series) on your return, culminating in an exhibition. Throughout the duration of the journey you will contribute to a daily blog, including exhibitions reviews, gallery profiles and critical responses.

The following unit has been updated:

SEXH5409 Medical Management of Interpersonal Violence
 
Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Associate Professor Katherine Brown and Dr Shailendra Sawleshwarkar Session: Semester 1 Classes: Online plus block/intensive mode: 2 days, (9am-5pm) at Camperdown/Darlington campus. Assessment: workbook (60%); participation and workshop presentation on campus (10%); case study (15%); completion of 1 expert certificate (15%) Mode of delivery: Block mode
 
Interpersonal violence has been recognised as a significant problem in Australia. This includes family violence, sexual assault and physical assault. Whilst health professionals are aware of the issue they often lack the requisite skills to examine patients with a view to documenting injury and preparing court reports and expert certificates in relation to the interpretation of injury. General practice and emergency departments are two common locations for the victims of interpersonal violence to present with injury. This unit of study is designed to equip the learner with the knowledge and skills required to respond to the clinical needs of a person who has experienced interpersonal violence and to document the findings in a manner that would be useful for medico-legal reports. The learning process will include readings and self-directed learning activities relevant to the learner’s working environment and geographical location. The course will deal primarily with the physical effects of violence with limited emphasis on the management of psychological trauma. The course includes epidemiology, interpretation of injury, basic forensic science and toxicology, legal issues such as consent and the presentation of an expert certificate for the court.
