this unit is taught through a combination of online lectures and supplementary materials (including film clips and music videos) and asynchronous, online tutorial discussions - the lectures will be available online, and you must listen to the lectures and complete the weekly readings before you before you participate in the online discussions. if you are undertaking this unit in a blended mode, you will still listen to lectures online and attend face to face seminars each week.
