Students are expected to attend or view the lectures, and to attend and actively participate in the tutorial and seminar sessions to achieve the learning outcomes of this unit.
Students are expected to regularly check the Canvas site and their university email for new information, readings and pre-tutorial activities relevant to the unit.

Use of standard word processing, email, image processing and presentation software (such as Powerpoint) is required.
Students are expected to learn to use a website platform of their choice for their e-portfolio, and will be expected to participate in some online activities using platforms such as Virtual Room (Blackboard Collaborate) or Zoom.
