COMP2750 is taught via lectures and SGTAs/Practical Classes.
- Lectures are used to introduce new material, 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 (This will be a pre-recorded content) with a follow-up class
- Note: Practical Classes commence in Week-2
- These are 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.
- You will need to enrol and attend the Practical Class that you've enroled in.
- Practical Classes will be providing you with practical experience of design and development processes. The content of the workshop may overlap or sometimes be ahead of the lecture content.
- If your workshop falls on a public holiday, you are expected to attend & participate in another workshop as a makeup class
- For details of days, times and rooms consult the timetables webpage.

Digital recordings of lectures are available. Read instructions here.
The unit makes use of discussion boards hosted within ilearn. Please post questions of general interest there (for example, about assessment tasks), they are monitored by the unit staff but students may also provide answers.
You have many opportunities to seek and to receive feedback. The feedback that you receive also plays an important role in your learning. Make sure you read the feedback you are given, attend lectures which provide assignment feedback and compare your solution with sample solutions provided. During lecture consultations, you are encouraged to ask the lecturer questions to clarify anything you might not be sure of. You may also arrange to meet with your tutor or the lecturer. Consultation hours will be provided in some of the weeks. Each week, you will be given activities and problems to solve in the workshops. This will at times involve contributing to a group of students and presenting solutions to the class. The solutions provided will help you to understand the material in the unit and prepare you for the work in assignments. You must keep up with these problems every week. Assignments have been specially designed to deliver continuous feedback on your work.
Each week you should:
- Attend lectures, take notes, ask questions
- Attend your practical classes and seek feedback from your tutor on your work
- Read assigned reading material/Watch lecture recording, add to your notes and prepare questions for your lecturer or tutor
- Start working on any assignments immediately after they have been released.
Lecture notes/videos are made available each week but these notes are intended as an outline of the lecture only and are not a substitute for your notes or reading of the other additional material.
