Please note that this unit has been altered to accommodate our delivery provisions in compliance with current COVID-19 requirements (Special Circumstance delivery). Learning activities (such as tutorials and other small group learning activities) will be offered on-campus while keeping an online version available for those students who choose to continue their studies online (selected via eStudent).
The learning and teaching strategies used in this Unit are structured around a textbook, an extensive set of interactive text, image and audio based online materials as well as pre-recorded video lectures (including associated Powerpoint presentations) and online or face-to-face tutorial participation.

Lectures: pre-recorded lecture videos to watch online every week
Tutorials: 1hr tutorial once a week; live sessions either in-person or online
Tutorials commence in Week 1. Each student will attend one tutorial per week. Attendance at tutorials (whether online or in-person) is expected and rolls will be taken. Learning the skill of phonetic transcription and the concepts necessary to gain a solid understanding of phonetics and phonology takes dedication, practice, and engagement. We are here to support your learning and we can only do this successfully through face to face contact with you to guide you through the materials. You must be prepared to attend and actively engage in the learning process with your teachers and peers.
