Subject Description
What are the future ways of working that will shape the experiences of media and communications graduates? What economic, technological and social changes are reshaping how sustainably we work? In this seminar we look at the transformation of work with a focus on the communication practices that enable us to navigate complex work situations skillfully. The seminar introduces students to the use of reflective narrative practice in ethical self development. This extends to an interview-based project in collaboration with a professional whose work is relevant to their specific interests and career hopes.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate understanding of the ways in which work culture and work places are changing
2. Collaborate effectively and ethically with others
3. Work independently to complete a small original research project on the nature of work
