Lectures: Fully online and pre-recorded
You will be able to access the lectures through the Echo360 link on our iLearn site each Tuesday.
Tutorial Work for External Students: Online Forums
Each week that an internal-student tutorial is held, there will be a corresponding online forum for external students. This is an opportunity for external students to ask questions, make comments on the topic, and to generally engaged with your lecturers and other external students. It is a chance to discuss all topics covered by the unit wth your lecturers. Each weekly forum will open on Tuesday
There will be 10 multiple choice quizzes (Weeks 2-11). Each quiz will be worth 4% of your final mark, for a total of 40% over 10 weeks. The quizzes are then important and you must be certain to take all of them. They will be found in the iLearn section for each week in which there is a quiz. Once commenced, the quizzes must be completed in one 10 minute session.
The quiz questions cover the content of the lectures and the set readings. They are an important means by which you can determine if you have understood the topic of the particular lecture and readings.
Please consult the MQ library site Leganto for readings in this unit.
The two textbooks are
Biers, W. R. 1996. The Archaeology of Greece: An Introduction, 2nd Edition. Cornell University Press.
Alcock, S. and Osborne, R. 2012. Classical Archaeology. Wiley-Blackwell. EBook available from MQ Library
Set readings and additional required readings are listed on our iLearn site for each week. The material can typically be accessed by Leganto.
We will post the Powerpoint of the lectures to the relevant Week's section of our iLearn site.
We will also be using the new Macquarie University History Museum and its collection of artefacts, but how much we are able to do with them will depend on the covid regulations in place at the time.
Unit Webpage and Technology Used
This unit will use the iLearn system (https://ilearn.mq.edu.au/login/MQ/) to communicate with the students, so you will need access to a computer and a good internet connection. Basic computer and word-processing skills are also required.
