This subject is part of the Australian Language and Culture Studies Program for international students in the School of International Studies. In the subject, students work in small groups to study aspects of the social, cultural, economic and linguistic landscape of a Sydney neighbourhood. Students conduct structured small-scale research in their chosen neighbourhood. This out-of-class work is supported by in-class work on basic approaches to data collection and the language needed to negotiate, conduct and report on a collaborative project. Students present their findings through a multimedia platform. As part of the assessment, they reflect, in writing and in seminars, on what they learned about Australian society and on their experience of the inquiry process.
