There are no required textbooks. Students will be introduced to reading material prior to commencement of the unit and during the teaching period, with information in lectures and on Canvas (check both the 'Modules' section and the 'Reading List').
This unit is taught on an intensive basis, with all content being delivered in only two weeks, from 5:30pm-9:30pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the first week and from 5:30pm-9:30pm on Monday and Wednesday in the second week. Despite being taught on in a two week period, students should expect to invest the time required for a 3 credit point unit
Assessment will relate to, and take place in, workshops, so students who are unable to attend will need to negotiate this with the Unit Convenor.
Required IT skills
In this event that we need to move online, this unit will involve online meetings in real time 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.
