Preparing Students for Industry

May 2016

Industry practice/simulations enable students to adhere to professional conduct standards, develop practical skills and apply theory into practice. This pattern introduces face-to-face industry practice/simulations, professional behaviour development and quizzes to align learning activities and assessments with real world professional conduct and experiences.

The pattern also aims to motivate and guide students to conduct adequate and appropriate preparations for the industry practice/simulations. Support for this pattern consists of resources, instructions and activities that can be used to prepare for industry practice/simulations. This framework can also be adapted and implemented by courses in other disciplines that include industry practice/simulations.
