Details of Learning Activities

Students will use the Planning and Time Management chart in the learning material to assist them through the course. The chart lists all your topics and their learning outcomes, and the activities and assessments to complete. Following this chart is the best way to monitor your progress and ensure you meet all deadlines.

This course runs for an 8 week duration (approximately 4 hours per week) consisting of both; in-class time and out of hours study. Students are expected to complete the project assessment either during scheduled class time or in their own time.

Students will submit their assessment projects and activities as indicated in the Learning Guide and feedback on activities and assessments will be provided during and after submission.

All work must be presented as specified by your teacher and as per the instructions in the learning guide. Students are required to be professional in both presentation and attitude, including meeting of deadlines. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden. Students must ensure they have read the plagiarism statement in the Course Outlines online.

A schedule of assessments can be found below and in the learning guides.
