Ths unit is designed to use a flipped classroom model to apply problem based learning to a complex real-world problem. Thus, the five workshops in this unit provide opportuniity for students to work in their groups to progressively apply the material delivered via Canvas to their real-world project.
To maximise the benefit of attending and participating in the workshops, students will need to have completed all lecture, readings and reflections prior to class.
All 5 workshops will be delivered online through UC Learn / Canvas, with capacity to place students into breakout rooms in their groups to work together.
COVID restrictions considered, there is a plan to also offer an on campus workshop (concurrent with the online one) in week 10 if students would like to meet face to face.
