Applied learning is an approach that contextualises learning in a way to empower and motivate students, whilst developing the key skills and knowledge required for employment, further education and active participation in their communities. It involves students and teachers in partnerships and connections with individuals and organisations outside of the traditional learning environment, and recognises that there may be multiple pathways to the desired learning goals. This unit will identify applied teaching and learning strategies (e.g. case studies, problem-based learning etc,) and explore their theoretical underpinnings and ways of thinking, being and doing required for effective learning.
