Introduction to IT Professional Practice

Welcome to the Deakin University unit, SIT752: Introduction to IT Professional Practice, exploring our professional skills.

This program is part of the Information Technology Leadership degree offered by Deakin University

Welcome to the program

Not only are employers seeking IT graduates with good technical knowledge, they are also demanding that they have well-developed professional skills. Even though you may have been working in the industry for a number of years, professional skills are a living skill, requiring ongoing improvement. SIT752 is designed for students who have experience working in industry for some time but need further development in evidencing professional skills. Students will identify professional skills that they have developed through their work activities in the field of IT and explore what constitutes evidence and how to document evidence for credentialing purposes.
