Fieldwork Preparation Online

Fieldwork Preparation Online is a set of resources available to Curtin fieldwork coordinators and students online. The five generic Curtin modules are:

  1. Introduction to Fieldwork: Explains the purpose of fieldwork and the roles and responsibilities of the student, fieldwork coordinator and partner supervisor.
  2. Preparing for Fieldwork: Practical preparation, including risk assessments, security checks, health screening or immunisations required by your school or faculty; and organising ‘reasonable adjustments’ if you have a disability or medical condition.
  3. Insurance, Safety and Travel: Identifies arrangements that need to be in place prior to commencing fieldwork; and how to obtain support if an incident occurs while undertaking fieldwork.
  4. Professional Conduct: Information about privacy, confidentiality, and codes of ethics and conduct to enable students to take responsibility for their own behaviour while undertaking fieldwork.
  5. Learning in the workplace: How to set personal learning goals and understand fieldwork assessment requirements, to gain maximum benefit from your fieldwork activity.

Fieldwork Preparation Online is available from a Blackboard unit site. Once enrolled in the unit, students or staff will automatically gain access to the materials via the Blackboard log-in.
