COMP3130 is taught via lectures and SGTAs (Small Group Teaching Activities)/ Practical Classes
- Lectures are used to introduce new material (mostly in video format), provide motivation and context for your study, guide you in what is important to learn and explain more difficult concepts.
- There are 2 hours of lectures per week.
SGTAs/ Practical Classes:
- Note: Practical classes commence in Week-1
- These small group classes which allow you to interact with your peers and with a tutor who has a sound knowledge of the subject. This also gives you a chance to practice your technology skills. The content of these classes may overlap or sometimes be ahead of the lecture content.
- You will need to enrol and attend the class that you've enrolled in.
- If your class falls on a public holiday, you are expected to attend & participate in another class as a makeup class to catch-up over the content for that lesson
- For details of days, times and rooms consult the timetables webpage.
