Each week, there will be a up to 2-hour long seminar covering weekly teaching materials. Starting in Week 2, we will also discuss questions regarding the lecture topics from the previous week. In preparation, students are required to read each week's reading material and watch the recorded lecture videos. Selected students will participate in the weekly held discussion forum on iLearn. Answers to these questions will be available in the following week. There may be additional readings in order to assist students in discussing these questions.
Material for the unit, such as lecture recordings and slides, will be available to students on the unit iLearn site at http://ilearn.mq.edu.au. Students are strongly encouraged to check the unit iLearn page weekly for announcements as well as the unit schedule, additional readings, assessment information, and discussion questions and answers.
