This capstone unit provides a range of options for students to integrate their knowledge and skills gained in the studies of the award through practical application in a supervised placement, practicum or project (projects may include a field based study tour, in-service presentation for work colleagues, community or parish project etc). The student will set specific learning outcomes for their supervised placement, practicum or project in consultation with their supervisor. The supervision will focus on identifying how the student’s theological studies give insights into their practical experience and how their praxis affects their theological reflection.
