Purpose of 'Zero Carbon Bill'
The purpose of the ‘Zero Carbon Bill’ is to move New Zealand to reduce carbon emissions, help us adapt to climate change, support global climate action and support environmental sustainability.
Polytechnic working partnerships include stakeholders*, other polytechnics and industry partners include partnerships with iwi, hapu, h?pori and M?ori researchers.
Applied research must be used to 1) solve a problem, 2) demonstrate collaboration and partnerships with others, and to 3) demonstrate valued outcomes for stakeholders.
This is the second of two assessments. For this assessment you will create an individual applied research paper, which will solve a problem relating the ‘Zero Carbon Bill’ to working partnerships for tertiary institutions, using both of two subthemes (stated below).
You will evaluate, develop and critically analyse the Zero Carbon Bill by demonstrating the impacts that collaborations and partnerships within our OPAIC (Otago Polytechnic Auckland International Campus) network have on your learning and by critically analysing how research can be applied to create value for OPAIC stakeholders.
Polytechnic working partnerships, improving outcomes for learners and communities,
Exemplified through applied research on the ‘Zero Carbon Bill’.
- Adaptive systems for enhanced learner outcomes (such as employability, internships and work-based learning)
- Embracing sustainability disequilibrium (innovative models and contributions to our future organisations and partnerships)
This is an individual assessment that you will complete in your learner-managed time; your teacher will provide opportunities during class time for clarification, guidance, class room based discussion and working opportunities. All work must be cited and referenced appropriately using the referencing technique as per the paper template. In order to pass this course, you must achieve a cumulative grade of at least 50% across assessments one and two.
- Analyse and evaluate global data & information for trends that influence decision making.
- Collaboratively develop innovative approaches for an organisation to respond to identified issues.
- Critically consider organisational responses to disruptive/changing technologies and processes and recommend appropriate actions.
