Teaching and Learning Strategy
This unit will have a two hour lecture weekly and a two hour tutorial/laboratory fortnightly.
You may make a request to attend a different tutorial/laboratory on a one-off basis for extenuating circumstances. In most cases lectures are recorded however, attendance is expected at both lectures and tutorials/laboratories, as this is where the majority of learning occurs. Failure to attend may impact your final results. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the unit convenor by email to inform them if they are going to be absent. The timetable for classes can be found on the University web site at: http://www.timetables.mq.edu.au/.
