The unit's teaching is comprised of 1 x one-hour lecture and 1 x two-hour workshop per week, starting from Week 1 of Session. The same structure applies both to weekday and to infrequent modes of enrolment.
In the workshops students will discuss issues and questions arising from the lectures and prescribed readings, and will engage in activities which build capacity for assignments and for transition to the profession. Workshops are integral to achieving the learning outcomes of the unit.
Students are required to participate in small group activities and whole class discussion, to read the weekly material in advance, and to complete brief tasks either as individuals or in pairs/small groups. The weekly program for the course with the accompanying readings / preparation is available on the unit's iLearn site. A summary of the unit schedule is provided in this unit guide.
