Important Information for All External Students
The unit convenor understands the challenges and difficulties of studying in external mode. Discussions around weekly topics will occur via the online discussion forum which many of you are probably already familiar with. Given the way this unit is scaffolded in terms of the assessment tasks and given the fact that it is centred around a research project that is self-selecting, she is concerned to create a space where external students and her can discuss the issues and challenges of the unit. To facilitate this the web conferencing app, Zoom, will be used. All external students are advised to download this (free) app. The convenor will provide a set of dates and meeting times at the beginning of semester. Hopefully, all external students can get to one of these. This will be an introductory meet and greet and where you can ask any questions about the unit, content, assessments, etc. The convenor will consider creating more online meetings as the need arises.
Please be advised that all the details and instructions around zoom will be up on iLearn under the 'Assessment' tab. Please consult it.
