Readings and resources will be made available through the unit's Canvas site.
Each week, both on-campus and online students will be expected to:
- Work on the online content modules, raising any problems or questions either in the on-campus class or in the online discussion space.
- Work towards completion of the major project.
- Report on the progress of your project. This will help to direct work, prioritise tasks, and solve problems. These reports will be critical to the success of the project.
- Participate in class discussions or activities, either during the on-campus class or in the online discussion space.These will relate to the content modules or major project, and while they will not be directly assessed, they will help you complete your assignments.
Required IT skills
This unit will make use of a range of digital tools and services. You will need access to a computer with a broadband connection.
Instruction will be provided in the use of specialised tools, but you are expected to have a good knowledge of how to access and use the web.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit may involve supervised project work in collaboration with an outside organisation and, therefore, additional student responsibilities are required in addition to those described in this section. Work-place learning requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics.
