Protecting Heritage Places is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with Curtin University. Its central focus is to equip you with a range of protective strategies for natural environments of distinctive cultural importance. By applying the principles of the Protecting Heritage Places kit to a site of your choice, you will learn the fundamental themes and be confident in applying them in the real world.
To begin with, you will gain an understanding of the definition of heritage and how and why we need to preserve it. Following this, you will choose your place and plan your project, considering key question such as ‘why is it important?’ and ‘what do I need to know?’ You will also be tasked with creating a long-term vision for the future of the space.
Ultimately, completing Protecting Heritage Places arms you with the essential theoretical frameworks required to ensure beautiful spaces stay that way for years to come. Upon completion of the unit, you will be able to apply these skills in the real world, as the learning process has strong vocational elements.
