Learning and Teaching Activities
Each week, lecture notes will be placed on iLearn before the class. These notes are only the core notes and they are NOT intended to stand alone nor in place of lecture attendance. They are provided for your convenience. You must also properly construct your own notes based on your own readings and any additional comments, supplements and corrections to these notes which may occur during lectures and which you MUST attend. The Lectures will be recorded on a weekly basis.
You are not entitled to rely on lecturer provided notes for full study purposes nor as the final indicator of exam content. You are required to and expected to read all text and legislative references and also to take into account comments, additional materials and illustrations and examples which may also be given in lectures.
It is expected that ALL students have prepared answers to each week’s presentation questions PRIOR to the seminar.
