Lectures are recorded and placed online for viewing It is expected that students will have listened to the latest lecture before attending a tutorial. Tutorial attendance, face to face or online, is expected. Non-attendance to tutorials is likely to diminish a student's ability to meet unit learning objectives, and will likely impair assessment performance. Tutorial attendance records will be kept and can be used as evidence of individual student engagement with the unit. It is expected that students will work through the online component of this course in a timely fashion.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess entry level IT skills. Students should be competent in navigating the Canvas site, and the use of word processing, spreadsheets and presentation software.
This unit involves 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.
Work placement, internships or practicums
WIL is simulated in this unit via case studies and industry based assessments.
