How do I navigate my career in an ever-changing workplace?

Adaptive Futures is a project based online practicum aimed at developing and applying students’ skills, capabilities and knowledge of future workplaces.

You’ll learn and practice the human skills required to be successful as an individual - curiosity, creativity, empathy, and courage. You’ll examine how these factors underpin future career success in a rapidly changing global landscape, taking into account emerging technologies, artificial intelligence and other globalisation factors.

Guided by your lecturer and as part of a small team, you’ll apply these skills and capabilities to a real-life business challenge for an industry partner. Your client will present a problem related to their future workforce and, in project teams, students will investigate this challenge, workshop solutions, and provide a recommended way forward.
