    will learn how to address complex social problems and you will develop practical skills
    to create better social outcomes.
    We explore the issues that policy makers, industry leaders and social service providers
    grapple with every day, such as inequality, place-based disadvantage, mental health,
    homelessness, and human rights. We will introduce models for systems change, social
    innovation, and cross-sectoral collaboration. You will complete the course with a broad
    understanding of social systems and the keys to initiating and sustaining positive social
    The course introduces national and global trends through a range of case studies, and
    you will have the opportunity to hear directly from experts in business, government and
    social purpose organisations who have successfully initiated social change.
    2.4 Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses
    This course aims to introduce students to systems thinking and societal change
    scenarios. It provides an overview of how sectors (public, private, and not-for-profit)
    create social impact in Australia and how they can work together more effectively to
    achieve positive social change. Students will examine these change processes within
    specific sectors as well as how these sectors interact to generate change. Catalysts
    and barriers to change will also be highlighted and supported by the real-life
    experiences of high calibre guest speakers. Students will be given the opportunity to
    put this learning into practice by planning their own change process to solve a social
    This course is designed as a flexible core elective in the Commerce (or Commerce
    related) program, a level 1 Business School elective, or a General Education course for
    students from other UNSW faculties. It is designed to complement learning within the
    broad range of programs from across the University.
    2.5 Student Learning Outcomes
    The Course Learning Outcomes are what you should be able to do by the end of this
    course if you participate fully in learning activities and successfully complete the
    assessment items.
    The Learning Outcomes in this course also help you to achieve some of the overall

    discussion-oriented. It will utilise innovative and varied learning, teaching and
    assessment strategies designed to apply content to practical examples and case
    The course assumes the ability and willingness of students to actively engage in class
    and to take on a multi-disciplinary approach.
    3.2 Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies
    This course is intended as a 1hr lecture and a 2hr tutorial allowing for blended learning

    4.3 Assessment Format
    Assessment task 1 – ESSAY: 1500 words (25%)
    Task description
    The first assessment is an essay in response to the following statement:
    ‘Change is the responsibility of the individual.’
    Your essay must integrate the ACAR critical thinking and systems thinking frameworks
    taught in Week 2 and 3.
    In your answer, draw on case studies from one of the following topics:
    - Drug addiction, or
    - Homelessness
    Your essay should allow you to better understand complex social change.
    Your essay will be based on academic sources: peer-reviewed books and/or
    journal articles. You are expected to include a minimum of six (6) academic
    sources in your essay. These sources can include readings from the course.
    However, you will need to research beyond the course readings in order to provide
    a deeper level of analysis in your essay. You are encouraged to draw upon
    additional theoretical material to enrich your analysis and substantiate your
    Your essay is due in week 5 (Friday, by 11.59pm), using the Turnitin link provided for
    that week and needs to be computer typed. The word limit is 1500 (with a leniency of,
    plus or minus, 10%).
    The marking criteria for this assessment is available on Moodle under the
    heading ‘FAQs, Marking Criteria & Assessment Resources.’Student marks and
    written feedback will be given 2 weeks after the submission of the essay (subject to
    assessments being submitted on time).
    Assessment task 2 – SECTOR ANALYSIS: 2000 words (30%)
    Task description
    In this assessment you are required to provide a sector analysis of what is currently
    being done to address the social issue you have selected in your teams. Even though
    you will be working on the same topic as your team members, this assessment is
    completed and marked on an individual basis.
    As part of your analysis you will need to identify the major initiatives/programs put in
    place to address your social issue across the three sectors (public, private, and not-for-
    profit). You must critically analyse whether these programs are successful or not and
    why this is the case. Use the ACAR and systems thinking frameworks and any other
    relevant course material as the basis for your analysis.
    Your research for this assessment will draw on media, reports, websites from the
    different sectors, and other current sources, as well as concepts from the course. Using
    this research, you will analyse what is being done by all sectors in relation to your
    COMM1000 – Creating Social Change
    social issue. This will allow you to situate your own change process within the current
    environment and differentiate what you are proposing to do from what has been done.
    Your sector analysis is due in week 9 (Friday, by 11.59pm), using the Turnitin link
    provided for that week and needs to be computer typed. The word limit is 2000 (with a
    leniency of, plus or minus, 10%).
    The marking criteria for this assessment is available on Moodle under the heading ‘FAQs,
    Marking Criteria & Assessment Resources.’
    Student marks and written feedback will be given 2 weeks after the submission of the
    essay (subject to assessments being submitted on time).
    Assessment task 3 – SOCIAL CHANGE PITCH (45%)
    Task description
    For this assessment you will be allocated to a team of three (3). In your team you will
    choose a social issue based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals
    (SDGs). Throughout the course your team will design a change process to address this
    social issue, and will present a social change pitch in the form of a written report in
    Week 11, and an oral presentation in either Week 11 or 12.
    Although you will be working in teams, the majority of this assessment is based on your
    individual contributions. Each individual in the team will be responsible for one section
    of the social change process, and will be assessed according to three components:
    • Individual written report (15%) due in week 11 (Friday, by 11.59pm), using
    the Turnitin link provided for that week. This needs to be computer typed. You
    will submit your individual section of the team report. The word limit is 1000 or
    the equivalent thereof (with a leniency of, plus or minus, 10%).
    • Individual oral presentation (20%) presented during your tutorial in week 11
    or 12. The time limit is 3-5 minutes. You will present your individual section of
    the team report.
    • Team design and presentation (10%): this mark is the same for all team
    members and will be based on the quality, cohesion and consolidation of the
    overall team presentation.
    Attendance will be compulsory during week 4, 5, 6, 9 & 10’s tutorials and will impact
    your individual marks for your reports.
    For your social change pitch, you are asked to focus on designing a process rather
    than a solution. To design your change process you will need to use the tools
    discussed in the course. This part is where you get to apply what you have learnt. Be
    careful not to get caught up in the details of finding a solution. Remember that you
    need to design your overall change process justifying your approach to change as well
    as your choice of specific tools to go about this change drawing on the material
    covered during the semester.
    This section should be very practical rather than written in an essay style. Your report
    should be structured as a report and in a professional manner. It is recommended that
    you do some research as to what a professional report looks like. .
    Your social change pitch is divided in 3 sections:
    CRICOS Code 00098G
    (i) PROBLEM: Identifying the problem and creating a vision and goals
    (ii) SYSTEMS THINKING: Mapping the root causes, system and actors
    (iii) ACTION: Tactics and strategies
    There will be time in tutorials dedicated to in-class team work throughout the semester
    – in weeks 4, 5, 6, 9 and 10. All team members are required to attend these
    workshops. Absent team members will lose 1 mark for each week missed deducted
    from their social change pitch mark on an individual basis.
    Do you have more questions about what is required?
    Have a look at your Social Change Pitch FAQ on Moodle
    available under ‘FAQs, Marking Criteria and Assessment
    COMM1000 – Creating Social Change
    4.4 Assignment Submission Procedure
    a) Online submission
    All assignments must be submitted electronically via Turnitin on Moodle. Individual
    assignments submitted electronically via Turnitin do not require cover sheets. Ensure
    that your student ID number is in the top right hand corner of each page for individual
    assignments and the team number plus student ID of all members is in the top right
    hand corner of your social change pitch. Full information about how to prepare
    assignments for electronic submission can be found in the Turnitin Student Guide:
    In the unlikely event that a problem should occur when submitting assignments online,
    students should make sure to send their assignment to the lecturer in charge before
    the deadline and re-submit using Turnitin as soon as the problem is rectified.
    Assignments not submitted through Turnitin will not be marked.
    b) Referencing style
    Harvard Referencing is required for all your assessments. The tutorial in Week 1
    will provide the opportunity to review academic integrity principles and how to
    reference correctly.
    For the ASB Harvard Referencing Guide, see the ASB Referencing and Plagiarism
    webpage (ASB >Learning and Teaching>Student services> Referencing and
    There is software available to you to make referencing easier:
    • Word has a built in referencing tool (
    • As a UNSW student you also have free access to using and downloading
    Endnote on your computers:
    c) Plagiarism
    Students need to familiarise themselves with appropriate referencing standards as well
    as what constitutes plagiarism (see
    courses/course-outlines/policies  for further details).
    If you are unsure, help is available here: If you
    would like further and personalised guidance with regards to the University
    requirements and policy around referencing, you can also book a meeting with the
    Learning Centre ( who
    will be able to provide you with the necessary guidance.
    Instances of plagiarism will be referred to the CSI Student Ethics Officer for review and
    educative action as appropriate.
    Marks will be deducted for inappropriate referencing.
    d) Formatting requirements
    Times New Roman, 12pt font and 1.5 line spacing is recommended.
    CRICOS Code 00098G
    e) Feedback
    Feedback is taken very seriously. It is the only way students can understand what was
    done well and what could have been done better, and therefore learn. Feedback on
    written assessment will be provided within two weeks of submission, as well as
    continuously throughout the semester during the tutorials or online. Students are
    reminded to keep a copy of all work submitted and returned marked assignments.
    4.5 Special Consideration, Late Submission and Penalties
    Late submissions that have not been approved will be downgraded by 5% for each day
    after the due date. This mean that for an assessment worth 30%, you will lose 1.5
    marks each day your assignment is late.
    Any piece of assessment not submitted within 10 days of the submission date will
    receive a zero (0).
    To know more about the special consideration process and assignment extensions,
    refer to
    4.6 Is English not your first language?
    Support is available to students for whom English is not their first language through the
    ‘Personalised English Language Enhancement’ course (HUMS1005). This course is
    offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences from 2017 – see here:
    Quality Assurance
    The Business School is actively monitoring student learning and quality of the student
    experience in all its programs. A random selection of completed assessment tasks
    may be used for quality assurance, such as to determine the extent to which program
    learning goals are being achieved. The information is required for accreditation
    purposes, and aggregated findings will be used to inform changes aimed at improving
    the quality of Business School programs. All material used for such processes will be
    treated as confidential.
    In this course we will talk about the power that you have as individuals to create social
    change as well as the need to work together to address social issues in their entirety.
    Working together is important and can lead to improved outcomes but it is not easy.
    Indeed, research shows collaboration is uncomfortable and setting clear and shared
    expectations as well as building trust are all important components of successful team
    Permanent Teams will be:
    • Announced in week 4
    • Allocated randomly by your lecturer in charge using Moodle.
    COMM1000 – Creating Social Change
    Which assessment is undertaken in our permanent teams?
    Your social change pitch and associated in-class work (see details in assessment task
    3) is undertaken in your permanent teams.
    How does this course ensure fair allocation of marks in team work?
    Individual components are built into your social change pitch to mitigate issues that
    might arise as a result of team work – see details in assessment task 3.
    How can we organise for enjoyable and efficient team work?
    Time will be allocated in week 4 for you to meet your permanent team in class. During
    this time, you will also be asked to agree on some background rules for ethical team
    work, and discuss what your expectations are of each other. You will also be asked to
    draw up a team contract that will be binding for the rest of the semester.
    What do I do if there are issues in my team?
    Working together is not always easy and issues may arise.
    • In the first instance, students are asked to bring up any potential issue to their
    team – a good way to do that is to go back to your team contract and discuss
    any points you have previously agreed on that you feel are not being respected.
    • In the second instance, if the issue remains, please contact your lecturer in
    charge ( to discuss further so that next steps can be
    implemented and the issue dealt with in a timely fashion.
    What will happen if there is an issue and this issue cannot be resolved?
    In extreme cases, your lecturer reserves the right to remove team members from
    teams, and ask individuals to complete team assignments on their own.
    What are my obligations as a UNSW student?
    Under the UNSW Student Code, all students have an obligation to observe standards
    of equity and respect in dealing with every member of the University community – this
    includes all your team members.
    Please remember that allegations of bullying, harassment and discrimination against
    students or by students are taken very seriously at UNSW. You can find more
    information on this here: Student Life and Learning Service and Resource Directory
    and here:
    Links to all required and optional resources are on the reading list for your course in the
    UNSW Library’s Leganto system, which you can access via your Moodle course. Please
    note you will need to login, and may be required to enter your UNSW zID and zPass in
    order to access the library site.
    Required readings consist of core texts and their applications. Readings are chosen to
    provide both theoretical foundation and to illuminate their meaning and usage in
    professional contexts. The readings are not to be studied in detail, but designed to initiate
    thinking and understanding of key themes in social systems and change.
    CRICOS Code 00098G
    Each year feedback is sought from students and other stakeholders about the courses
    offered in the School and continual improvements are made based on this feedback. In
    this course, we will seek your feedback through end of semester myExperience
    responses. Your feedback is important to ensure the course is continually improved.
    Lectures start in Week 1 and finish in Week 12.
    Workshops start in Week 1 and finish in Week 12.
    Your regular and punctual attendance at lectures (Weeks 1-4) and tutorials (Weeks 1-
    12) is expected in this course. University regulations indicate that if students attend
    less than 80% of scheduled classes they may be refused final assessment. This means
    you are required to attend a minimum of 10 out of the 12 scheduled tutorials. Weekly
    attendance will be taken. For more information, see:
    As we progress through the semester,
    remember to be mindful of how you feel
    Social issues can be difficult to talk about sometimes and it is
    important to be mindful of how you feel. If you ever feel
    uncomfortable or distressed in class and would prefer not to
    take part in the discussions, please remember that it is
    completely ok for you to leave the room.
    If you ever experience any distress, whether during or after
    the classes, you are very welcome to contact your lecturer in
    charge ( to discuss this further – all
    discussions remain confidential and will not affect your marks
    in any way. If you feel that you need further support, the
    University provides free and confidential counselling and
    psychological services to all students enrolled at UNSW: - please do not
    hesitate to contact them, they are very helpful. You can also
    call Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511, it is a 24-hour
    telephone service operating seven days a week across NSW.
    It provides connections to crisis support and counselling.
    Your contributions in class and your willingness to discuss
    these issues to create positive and meaningful social change
    are extremely valuable.
