Learning Outcomes



 


Details of Learning Activities

This semester we will be learning remotely through Collaborate Ultra Sessions.

A range of learning activities are planned for this course including self-paced and discussion activities.

The self-paced activities will be delivered through various technology platforms and may include your contribution to wikis and discussion threads, reflective journals, quizzes and interactive sessions.

The collaborative activities will include group discussions, group problem-solving activities and opportunities to practice your skills in a simulated/real workplace environment. We expect you to participate and contribute in all scheduled learning activities.

This course will be delivered via our existing learning management system, Canvas.  This means that, for the foreseeable future, there will be no face-to-face classes in any of the units for which you are enrolled.

Classes in each of your units will still take place in their normal scheduled time-slots, but instead of being conducted in a face-to-face mode, your teachers will utilise the Collaborate Ultra platform to deliver ‘live’ online classes.  These classes delivered online will not only provide you with the required learning materials for those sessions, but they will also enable interactions with your teachers and fellow students via forums or discussion boards.

This course guide contains information that describes course aspects that don’t change and are locked in well ahead of the semester. Any information that differs due to changes of delivery is a consequence of COVID-19. Your course coordinator will advise you as to the correct details via Canvas.
