Teaching Schedule

For students who commenced February 2016

This course is taught over 11 sessions in semester 2. The course forms part of a cluster of 3 courses which together are referred to as the "E-learning" cluster; the other 2 units of the Delivery cluster are TAEDEL501A Facilitate e-learning & TAEDES505A Evaluate a training program. In every session various elements will be covered from each unit in the cluster.

Note: While your teacher will cover all the material in this schedule, the weekly order is subject to change depending on class needs.
