WINE 3500EX - Learning Discoveries In Wine

North Terrace Campus - Trimester 3 - 2015

This course involves direct interaction between students and wine industry and academic experts, thus allowing students to engage with these mentors in order to develop an in depth understanding of the relevance and importance of their respective contributions to the wine industry nationally and internationally. These mentors will share real life wine experiences and insights with students in small group settings and assist them to understand, quite intimately, some of the important areas of wine related business and academic pursuits underpinning industry success. These mentors will include staff at the university (across disciplines), visiting academics and be drawn from industry and government. The outcomes will be individual research reports and reflective journals. Students will also have the opportunity to explore their particular areas of interest as related to the expertise of the mentors involved.

  • Learning Outcomes
    Course Learning Outcomes
    The course requires students to engage in student-driven research in a small team context working under the guidance of mentors. They must devise an appropriate research strategy to locate information from self-determined sources and, working together, rigorously evaluate the information using criteria based on experience, expertise and literature. They must identify specific knowledge gaps and determine and appropriate methodology for synthesising, organising and applying the knowledge to fill those gaps. In addition, students are required to persuasively communicate the knowledge to a range of audiences using discipline specific and appropriate language.

    Hence, this course aims to develop and enhance the skills needed to work effectively in a small team context, show leadership and cooperation to achieve the required outcome. This involves data collection, interviewing, and ultimately, report writing including strategic recommendations. Finally, the continuing development of good research, teamwork, inter-personal and communication skills is widely recognised as important for all graduates.

    By the end of this course students should be able to accomplish the following Learning Outcomes (LO):
    1. The ability to work effectively as a team member, showing leadership and cooperation as required to enhance group outcomes;
    2. The ability to develop an interview plan and use it to effectively interview individuals and collect relevant primary information;
    3. A comprehensive understanding of and the ability to apply basic secondary data collection and evaluation;
    4. The ability to undertake strategic business analysis in order to develop appropriate problem solving strategies;
    5. The ability to communicate, clarify, and present to peer audiences in a professional setting; and
    6. The ability to produce a logical and coherent group Research Report that provides value to stakeholders.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
