Teaching Pattern

Lectures are delivered from Hobart through LIVE recording and all students are encouraged to participate at the time of recording. All students will attend a weekly online tutorial, and weekly workshops (on campus for attending students and online for distance students). Participation in online activities is an essential part of the unit.

It is important to note that teaching and learning online requires the same time and commitment as teaching and learning in a face-to-face environment.

Access to a reliable internet connection is essential for this unit.
