Delivery Format and Other Details:
Classes in ACCG2024 for Session 1 2021 are composed of pre-recorded online lectures and on-campus tutorials or online zoom tutorials. The pre-recorded lectures will provide comprehensive explanations of the key concepts and worked out lecture examples for the technical aspects of the topics. This pre-recorded lecture will be uploaded on iLearn the week prior. Students are expected to watch the pre-recorded lectures before attending their tutorials.
There will also be a 1.5 hour tutorial every week from weeks 2 to 13. Students can choose to enrol in either face-to-face on campus tutorial or an online zoom tutorial. The face-to-face or online zoom tutorials will involve the tutors and the students working through pre-set tutorial questions. Students must register for a tutorial and attend the same tutorial each week.
The unit's learning outcomes can only be achieved through self-study and independent learning supported by watching the lectures and attending the tutorials. The lectures provide a general overview of the topics highlighting a number of concepts and techniques. The tutorials complement lectures by providing opportunities to further explore all relevant concepts and techniques. Both lectures and tutorials will only support your learning if you prepare them thoroughly by doing the recommended readings and the pre-set tutorial questions as outlined in the Unit Schedule (available on the ACCG2024 iLearn web page) beforehand. Lecture slides will be available on the ACCG2024 iLearn web page. Tutorial solutions will be made available at the end of the relevant week on the ACCG2024 iLearn web page.
