Knowledge and Professionals (ATSGC1370)

Graduate professionals enter a workforce that is increasingly focused on the needs of a knowledge society and economy. As future participants in a variety of professions, they will be required to evaluate and use knowledge on a daily basis. Some will go on to contribute to the creation of new knowledge in their professional fields. This course contextualises the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values required to be successful university students in the post-tertiary professional workplace. To become successful graduate professionals, students need to understand the fundamentals of a society shaped through knowledge; its historical precedents and its possible futures. This course examines the role of knowledge experts in disciplinary fields and professions, the creation of new knowledge, the function and processes of knowledge communication, as well as the intended - and unintended - consequences of the use of knowledge. The importance of a personal and professional evaluation of knowledge is emphasised as central to the development of responsible citizens in an increasingly global knowledge economy and society.
