In this 3000- level unit of study, students of multiple disciplines and cultures will work collaboratively to propose innovative solutions to challenges that are of particular concern for the Pacific region. More specifically, the Unit will provide an opportunity to work on a real-world health-related problem. Working in multidisciplinary teams (from any faculty/school in the university), students will work with an industry or community partner in the Pacific region while receiving academic expertise and supervision. They will undertake a short field trip to New Caledonia which will offer a real-life immersive and cultural experience and direct interaction with industry partner and communities. They will apply the knowledge and skills acquired in their own discipline and actively contribute to the development of an innovative solution to a health-related challenge arising in community or industry settings. Students will need to carry out the full range of activities including capturing stakeholders' requirements, searching for relevant literature, critically analysing information, designing, prototyping, testing and reporting. They will engage in agile project management and design thinking methods
