Please consult the MQ timetable website for up to date timetabling of lectures and tutorials:
Please note, you must attend the tutorial you are enrolled in. If you wish to change your tutorial time you can do so via e-student. Your tutor/lecturer will not be able to change your tutorial enrolment. Do not turn up to a tutorial that you are not enrolled in. We cannot accept extra students into a fully enrolled tutorial.
Tutorials begin in Week Two.
This unit has a 3 hour screening and lecture slot (consisting of a 50min lecture and a full length film screening) and a one hour tutorial every week. Lectures are recorded and available through iLearn, however students are strongly encouraged to attend lectures. Lectures are often interactive and some material shown in lectures can't be recorded through Echo360. The films screened will also be available through the Reserve section of the library, and some films are available for viewing through Kanopy via the library website. Tutorial attendance is compulsory. Students are required to prepare for tutorials by having attended or listened to the lecture, having viewed the film, having done the week’s readings and prepared questions and notes. If you miss tutorials without medical certification or other evidence of disruption this will impact on your 'Engagement' mark for the unit.
Outside of class attendance students should expect to spend approximately seven hours each week reading, preparing for tutorials and researching and planning for assignments.
Required readings are available online through the MQ Library website. To access readings you need to click on the "Unit Readings" tab on the library's home page.
There is a list of further recommended reading for each topic - please refer to iLearn.
TECHNOLOGIES USED AND REQUIRED
Lectures will be recorded and available on iLearn. Details on readings, assessments and links to relevant material will be available on ilearn. Students are expected to regularly check iLearn and their MQ email addresses for announcements.
During the semester you will receive feedback in many forms. Sometimes this feedback will be verbal and informal and will come from your tutor such as during tutorials or lectures when you offer up ideas or questions. At times your tutor and lecturer will also offer more general feedback about the group's progress during tutorials. At other times feedback will be more formal, in the case of written feedback on your final essay or the posted correct responses to the questions in the online quiz.
You will also receive valuable feedback from your peers through the semester. This will take the form of written comments on the student forum on ilearn and through activities and discussion during tutorials.
