Details of Learning Activities

Students will participate in a variety of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials,practicals, class discussion,
audio-visual presentations, prescribed reading, review questions, case projects, and maintenance of an engineering journal.

This course is accredited by Engineers Australia.

Engineering employment requires the capacity to work effectively in teams, to communicate effectively in both oral and writing and to learn effectively.
In order to prepare students for employment as graduates they will be provided a quality assured teaching and learning environment which is
conductive to the development of adult learning. Adult learning is characterised by the students accepting responsibility for their own learning
and actively participating in the learning process as individuals and as contributors to the teams. Adult learning is the hallmark of a professional.
The specific responsibilities as adult learners in respect of this subject are:
. to be aware of and to observe the regulations related to plagiarism
. to submit (on time) all work for assessment as required
. to complete all pre-reading and preparatory work prior to the class for which it will be used
. to effectively use the academic staff resources provided (consultation time, tutors, e- mail etc)
. to participate as an effective and honest member of a learning team
. to contribute effectively to a group of peers in a climate of mutual respect and to question each other and the academic staff when uncertain
