This unit consists of a weekly two-hour seminar.
The prime resource for the unit is iLearn (http://iLearn.mq.edu.au).
It is vital that students familiarise themselves with the site and move through it from week to week, undertaking the required readings and the associated activities.
The unit convenor also uses the iLearn homepage to post important resources, announcements and links.
All required readings for the unit are in e-reserve/online readings.
Special Instructions for External Students
All activities undertaken in this unit are designed for both day and external students (including the debates). The iLearn site is particularly important for external students. Most of our discussions will take place via the discussion forum.
In the first week of the unit there will be specific instructions, via the online introductory video and the discussion forum, about how externals will undertake the unit and its various components, particularly the Debates.
A time will be allocated in that first week for the online debates. It is vital that you note the time and date and make sure you are available.
Other instructions for the debates are:
- Group delivery of the debate - use Zoom ap
- Zoom will be used to discuss debate, topic approaches, who is to research topics etc
- Whilst on Zoom one of the group will create a (shared) Google doc to take notes and to manage progression of tasks.
- Students can schedule and collaborate their own zoom sessions via their mq student email address.
Students will be provided with the schedule meeting link for the debate in iLearn.
