Attendance at classes is compulsory in this course. Because we understand that students have multi-rolled lives, 3 seminar absences in the period from the beginning of planned classes until the end of the semester, will be accepted. However, these absences are tolerated based on the expectation that students will seek out information on content and processes which they have missed. If students regularly miss timetabled seminars a 500 word synopsis about their learning on the topic/s of any missed sessions may be required to be submitted.
Required IT skills
The Client Services Division provides campus IT networks for the University, including computers and networked information resources for student use.
