Wondering how you navigate your career in an ever-changing workplace? 

The Future of Work Project is an online practicum aimed at developing and applying your 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 skills intersect with emerging technologies, artificial intelligence and globalisation. 

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.
