TEACHING & LEARNING STRATEGIES This is a unit of study where learners are responsible for managing their own time in completing prescribed reading, undertaking further research and completing assessment tasks. Students are expected to participate in practical problem solving sessions, usually through team work, in class, and through case study analysis. Students are supported through regular in-class contact, such as lectures, tutorials and workshops and are expected to participate in online learning activities, peer discussion and review, and self-reflection. For every classroom-based contact hour it is expected that students will undertake another two hours of self-directed work.
The subject is taught using a lecture/tutorial basis. Lectures will consist of topic summaries, explanations and demonstrations and will provide an overview of the theoretical and applied aspects of the course content. However, they will constitute an introduction only – in order to
