Lectures: For this unit, one 1-hour, on-line lecture is scheduled per week for weeks 1 to 7 only. The lectures will be audio-recorded and made available on the ilearn website prior to the scheduled delivery time of 2 pm to 3 pm Tuesday. The lecture programme is outlined in this guide.
Tutorials: There is one 2-hour tutorial per week for this unit. Tutorials begin in the second week of semester and run until week 13. Six optional tutorials are offered as indicated below, two of which are on-line.
Note: Students will be able to access recordings of lectures through iLearn, but no substitute is possible for the interactive and problem-based weekly tutorial classes. Students are, therefore, strongly encouraged to attend all tutorials during semester if at all possible.
