Internal students are required to attend two lectures and one tutorial each week. The tutorials for each week follow on directly from the lectures, so we will be discussing each week's lecture topics in the same week's tutorials. Tutorials begin in week 2. There are no tutorials in weeks 7 and 13. Jenny Duke-Yonge is the lecturer and tutor for this unit.
The timetable for this unit can be found at https://timetables.mq.edu.au. You should check the timetable prior to the start of the Session for any updates.
Please note that this unit is not offered with an internal iLearn only option. This is partly because the tutorials run directly on from the lectures, and partly because of the in-class assessment in Week 7.
If you are unable to attend one or both of the lectures on a regular basis, you should:
- Consider enrolling as an external student, or
- Enrol in a tutorial that gives you time to catch up on the iLectures before coming to the tutorial, and ensure that you do so. You will still need to make arrangements to come to the Wednesday lecture in week 7, when the in-class test will be held.
The textbook for the unit is Logic Greg Restall (UCL Press, ISBN 9780415400688). This book will be used throughout the course and you will need a copy of it. It is available at the Co-op Bookshop.

PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions)
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are now operating in this unit.
PASS sessions are not compulsory, but are highly recommended for all students taking this unit.
PASS sessions are 1 hour weekly study groups where students get together to consolidate their understanding of the course material; reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies. Students work in small study groups facilitated by skilled leaders who will specifically guide your learning. PASS Leaders are former students of this unit who achieved excellent results themselves, and who have been trained as PASS leaders to help you get the most out of the unit.
PASS is for everyone – it is not a remedial program for struggling students, but a program for all students who want to improve their performance.
More information about PASS sessions will be given in the first lecture, and through iLearn.
