Unit delivery and learning resources
Students are required to attend a weekly lecture and tutorial (lectures commence in Week 1, tutorials commence from Week 2). There are also online learning resources that students are required to engage with to complement the weekly lecture and tutorial.
Lectures and tutorials are interactive and are designed to facilitate further discussion of concepts covered in online learning resources and their application to practical cases.
The timetable for classes can be found on the University web site at: http://www.timetables.mq.edu.au/
Changes to student timetables may only be made through eStudent. Students wishing to change their allocated tutorial should log onto to eStudent and enrol in a tutorial where there is a vacancy. Any question of an administrative nature in relation to tutorial allocations should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Student enrolments must be finalised by the end of Week 1. No further changes may be made after Week 1.
