The students will participate in various learning activities such as lectures, tutorials, online learning activities and self-directed learning. The students' learning will be supplemented by the 10239 Canvas site.
The lectures will be recorded and will be accessible through the 10239 Canvas site. A grade of 50% or greater overall is required to pass. In accordance with current professional accreditation requirements, to demonstrate you have met the learning outcomes of this unit it is expected that you attempt all elements of assessment to a reasonable standard.
Required IT skills
Students will need basic IT skills and high qauility access to the Canvas site.
This unit involves online lectures pre recorded using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room. If the need arrises the lectures may sometimes be pre-recorded and uploaded to the canvas site.
