There are no compulsory on campus sessions for external students. Teaching sessions for internal students take place on Tuesday evenings (6-9pm) and external students are welcome to attend these teaching sessions if they are able to do so.
GEOP809 is a 4-credit point postgraduate unit, consisting of a total workload of 150 hours. It is therefore expected that students will devote approximately 10hrs per week over 15 weeks to meet the requirements of the unit.
Technology used and required
All enrolled students have access to the unit iLearn website. The website will provide access to teaching materials, reading lists, assignment submission and forum discussions. For external students, the unit is structured so that the majority of learning will take place online. All teaching sessions are recorded, and recordings can be accessed via iLearn. Regular access to iLearn is essential in order to complete the unit successfully.
There is no set textbook for this unit. Required reading for each module and for assignments will be made available via iLearn and Multisearch. In undertaking assignments, students are also expected to search for additional resources (electronic journals or books) available in Macquarie University Library.
