A day in the life of... a Deep Tech Startup Accelerator Manager at CSIRO (Automated, Team based)
The 'Day in the Life' workplace simulation puts learners into the shoes of a new employee, and they are challenged to complete a series of work tasks. The app features an employee of the company and supports a learner team through the experience. Students work together to complete tasks, upload their submissions (1 per team), self evaluate, and provide feedback to team mates through a team 360. They are provided with a pre-recorded example of a work product and an explanation. Students complete a reflection at the end of the experience.
In this experience, learners play the role of Investment Associates with CSIRO 'ON' - Australia’s national ‘deep technology’ accelerator. 'ON' invests in supporting research teams develop an investable startup business based on their technology.
