In contemporary society heritage is understood as a form of cultural practice and  production that operates  at  local, national and global scales. Heritage has moved beyond the identification and conservation of 'things we want to keep' to incorporate ideas about intangible values, identity formation, the role of memory and different knowledge systems from critical and theoretical perspectives. This unit of study will examine how heritage is produced, consumed, negotiated and conserved through political processes, structures of governance and cultural practices.

MKTG6010 Machine Learning in Marketing
Credit points: 6 Session: Semester 1 Classes: Refer to the unit of study outline https://www.sydney.edu.au/units Prerequisites: BUSS6002 Assessment: Refer to the unit of study outline https://www.sydney.edu.au/units
With fast growth of the modern digital economy, multi-quintillion bytes of data is generated every day.This provides an enormous opportunity and a significant challenge for marketers to extract marketing insights because of not only the size of the data, but also the structure of the data. A growing proportion of the data is unstructured, such as customer emails and texts, mobile data, social media UGCs, C2C data on two-sided platforms in the sharing economy. Traditional marketing research methods cannot be used to solve these problems. This unit introduces state of the arts machine learning methods to help marketers extract consumers insights from big data including structured and unstructured data and make better informed business decisions.

Credit  points: Teacher/Coordinator: Assoc Prof Martin Tomitsch Session: Intensive July Classes: workshop 7 hrs/wk Assessment: online quizzes (35%), in-class activities (35%) and reflective statement (30%) Mode of delivery: Block mode

In this unit, you will learn practical techniques for addressing complex problems and the role of interdisciplinary perspectives in developing innovative strategies. Complex problems, sometimes referred to as being Wicked, include concerns of global dimension that deeply impact on the lives of people, such as climate change, mass urbanisation, world poverty and food security. Through examples, you will develop an understanding of what constitutes complex problems. You will be taken through scenarios, enabling your insights into the use of techniques across a range of practical situations. Through exercises and practice techniques you will integrate your disciplinary expertise with perspectives from other disciplines. Building on this understanding, you will assess and reflect on how problem-solving techniques can lead to innovative strategies that address complex challenges in research projects.

Description: All research questions are about variables and the building blocks of all studies are variables. This unit will help you think about variables in a disciplined and abstract manner regardless of your field of research. We will describe their types, based on several criteria (including level of measurement, role in the study, level of control over variables), and issues that arise when deciding how to measure variables. We will also introduce different terms used for the same basic concepts in different areas of study.

This unit of study will explore the evidence base, implications and considerations when delivering sexual health and relationships education from a public health perspective. Students will develop skills
in the development and facilitation of training and education to different population groups. Students will be able to evaluate knowledge needs and synthesise information related to sexual and relationship education. On completion of the unit, students will be able to, 1. Plan and conduct a session which facilitates learning for a chosen population group/community using appropriate health education and learning frameworks, 2. Develop the skills to enable people within a variety of settings to enhance their sexual health and relationship literacy and, 3. Critically appraise various approaches to sexual health and relationship education development.
