Lectures: Fully online. You will be able to access the lectures on the Echo360 platform via our iLearn site.
Tutorial Work for External Students: Online Forums
Every week that an internal-student tutorial is held, there will be a corresponding online forum that will focus on the same questions as those that are used in the internal forums. Responses will be expected by the evening of the Sunday following the Tuesday lecture.
REQUIRED TEXTS (available online through the MultiSearch function of our Library): Shelmerdine, C. (ed.). 2008. The Cambridge Companion to the Aegean Bronze Age. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, New York. Cline, E. H. (ed.). 2010. The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean (ca. 3000-1000 BC). Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York; Berg, I. (2019), The Cycladic and Aegean Islands in Prehistory, Taylor&Francis, New York.
Supplemental readings: We will also assign or recommend supplemental readings whenever we find an article or chapter that particularly supports what we are doing in the lecture and tutorial.
NB: All readings for class should be completed before the lecture, and must be completed before attempting the quizzes and posting your responses to the forums.
Good participation will depend on coming to the tutorials prepared to discuss the material from the lecture and the readings.
UNIT WEBPAGE AND TECHNOLOGY USED AND REQUIRED
This unit will use the iLearn system (https://ilearn.mq.edu.au/login/MQ/) to communicate with the students, so you will need access to a computer and a good internet connection. Basic computer and word-processing skills are also required.
