Times and location for Lectures and Tutorials: for current updates, lecture times and classrooms please consult the MQ Timetables website: www.timetables.mq.edu.au
The unit is taught as a "lectorial", this means lecture and tutorial are integrated as a 3-hour block. Each of these sessions is recorded and then made available on the iLearn site. The unit website also contains additional materials, revision exercises, and various practice quizzes that are designed to assist the student with continuous learning. Active engagement with the website is essential to successfully complete the unit.
Students are expected to complete the Exercises set in preparation for each class and upload them on the unit's iLearn site. This will enable them to participate actively in class, get feedback on what they have submitted when the exercises are discussed in class, ask pertinent questions, and integrate the new topics into a progressively more solid foundation. Failure to properly attempt and upload exercises will incur a penalty in the form of a deduction of 1% for each exercise not uploaded from the total marks a student gains for the unit.
Vocabulary Tests and Translation Tests are conducted and assessed online. For details on the submission of the Assignment (Translation Task in Week 6) and the final Exam (in Week 13) see the iLearn site.
