There is no required text as readings will be available on UC Learn (Canvas).
The University will return to campus in 2022 and we will run face-to-face tutorials. This unit is mostly delivered on-campus. However, we may need to be flexible regarding face-to-face learning and will follow COVID-safe principles.
Please see current information regarding the return to campus below:
Each weekly lecture will have a different theme (see Timetable of Activities). Lectures introduce the key concepts, share case studies and provide inspiration for your assessment.
You are welcome to attend lectures in-person. However, if you prefer to listen online the lecture recordings they will be available via Canvas. Lectures should generally be available following the scheduled time Wednesdays 13:30pm-14:30pm. Some lectures will be pre-recorded and we will have an online 'excursion' in Week 11. I encourage you to listen to lectures before attending tutorials.
Participation in tutorials will ensure that you experience two-way learning and get the best experience through engagement with your peers. However, if you have difficulty or concerns regarding tutorial attendance please get in touch so that we can make arrangements (email@example.com).
Tutorial activity and discussion will focus on weekly themes or assessment. It is expected that you complete weekly readings to participate in class and that on assessment weeks you come prepared as outlined in your assessment schedule. We will generally leave 30 minutes at the end of each tutorial for student consultation. You are encouraged to bring your laptop or smartphone device to explore examples further and to work on assessments in the set tutorials.
Inclusion and engagement
Please contact your unit convenor to confirm inclusion and engagement arrangements (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Students are expected to participate and attend weekly tutorials to achieve the learning outcomes of this unit. Lecture attendance is highly reccomended. There is a significant link between student participation and the quality of learning demonstrated in submitted assessment. Please contact your unit convenor if you have any concerns about attendance and participation.
Required IT skills
Basic computer use such as email, ability to navigate websites, use of Canvas and Library Catalogue.
Students will be required to plant and create a digital story. They will use the IT skills that they already possess and use technology that they currently have access to (for example a smartphone or digital camera). Planning for this assessment will be discussed in class and resources will be available on Canvas.
