  • Involve higher-order cognitive processes to reach a deep understanding of content and issues in a contemporary world.
  • Include immersion in addressing areas or issues that are often cross-disciplinary.
  • Integrate academic and personal capabilities.
  • Are active, authentic, challenging, and student-centred.
  • Are often designed to impact the world, locally or more widely.
  • Take place in a range of settings and increasingly use digital and connectivity.
