There is no required text book for this unit and therefore it is essential that students attend lectures or follow lectures on ECHO360 so as to acquaint themselves with concepts and arguments that will give them an understanding of material that will form the basis of presentation topics and exam questions.
Equally, students must attend tutorials due to the nature of group assessments.
Various readings and book chapters will be placed on the Canvas "Readings" tab.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend lectures in person. Lectures are recorded and placed Online via an automated process the lecturer has no control of this process. At times this automated process does not work properly resulting in lack of audio or video for a lecture. Engaging in lecture material is expected through attendance at lectures, through listening to lecture online recordings, or both. Tutorial attendance 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.
Information will be placed on Canvas as a way of helping students to understand lecture material. This does not replace material covered in lectures. The experience of past years shows a direct positive relationship between lecture attendance numbers and pass grade numbers.
