Work Integrated Learning.

Good Health Design is a design and research studio based in AUT’s School of Art + Design. Learn more about us and what we do here.

We have several unique opportunities for AUT 3rd year Communication Design students looking for 60 hour Work Integrated Learning experiences (GRAD704) to work on some real world projects in the health and wellbeing space.

If you’re interested in working with our team and being part of design projects that have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of our local communities, please email an application to us at goodhealthdesign@aut.ac.nz. Your application should contain your portfolio, CV, and a short paragraph outlining why you are interested in working with us. Please mention the project you are interested in on your email application.

Current Project Opportunities.

This page outlines just a few of the projects we are seeking students to help out on, but we have many more projects for students who are keen to work with our team.

Museum of Meaningful Moments

The Museum of Meaningful Moments (MMM) is a community wellbeing project that invites people to respond to questions or prompts about their everyday experiences in times of change. The purpose of the Museum is to showcase and celebrate the moments we take for granted in daily life. We want to help show how we all see things in different ways. When viewed as a whole, the collection is a reminder that while our everyday experiences may be unique to us as individuals, our collective experience at any given moment is made up of many different points of view. In this way, the Museum of Meaningful Moments allows us to see what is unique, and what is shared, in our experience of times of change. Learn more about this project at www.museumofmeaningfulmoments.com or on social media @museofmeaning

We're looking for a student or two to help create some promo material for this to increase awareness — some examples might be a showcase for large TVs around AUT, small flyers to drop off around the city, and other cool and creative ways to promote MMM.

Medication Information

Medication information is often overwhelming and loaded with medical jargon. We had a student earlier in the year, design a template for a more visual and patient friendly medication information leaflet.

We are after a communication design student who can build on this work and develop an extensive icon bank to represent various conditions, symptoms and side effects of common medications. This project will be in collaboration with our external partner at the Institute for Innovation and Improvement (i3), Waitematā DHB. Learn more about i3 at i3.waitematadhb.govt.nz

Korero Mai Awareness

Our partners at the Institute for Innovation and Improvement (i3) are looking for some creative help with improving the awareness of their Korero Mai campaign within their hospitals – North Shore Hospital and Waitakere Hospital. Korero Mai (Talk to Me), is a service co-designed by patients and their whānau, designed to help patients and their whānau get the help they need if they feel concerned about a change in their or their loved one's condition. It is a three step system to enable escalation of concerns about a patient's condition, to ensure that every patient receives the best care during their time in hospital, but also makes sure that everyone is heard and understood.

This is a live project that will require you to think of small but creative solutions to increase the awareness of the campaign to patients and their whānau during their stay in hospital, so they can use the service if they need to. We're looking for one or two communication design students who would be interested in working with us and our partners on this project.
