This unit has 3 hours face-to-face teaching per week consisting of 1 x 2 hour lecture and 1 x 1 hour tutorial.
All additional Unit information is available either on iLearn or via the University Library (databases or eReserve)
The timetable for classes can be found on the University web site at: http://www.timetables.mq.edu.au.
Classes may vary due to public holidays. Any variations will be advised via iLearn.
Attendance at tutorials is compulsory. Warning: You must attend at least 10 of the 12 sessions – failure to do so may lead to major deduction from your individual reports and group-work contribution.
Technologies Used: Access to a personal computer and a good, reliable Internet connection is required to complete the Group Report.
You may be required to participate in informal presentations and experiential exercises throughout the semester. In addition pop quizzes may be distributed in the tutorials at random dates. Once the tutorial groups are formed, students cannot change their classes. Medical certificates must be provided if you are not able to attend a class without incurring a penalty.
Students are expected to arrive on time, and not to leave until the class ends. If you have a recurring problem that makes you late, or forces you to leave early, have the courtesy to discuss this with your lecturer/tutor.
Mobile phones should be turned off during classes; not simply set to “silent”. All laptops must be turned OFF in class. Students who disturb or disrupt in class sessions will be asked to leave. You can access the unit iLearn at this link: https://ilearn.mq.edu.au.
