Unit Learning Experiences The learning and teaching approach informing the assessment and activity selection and design in this unit are student-centred, constructivist, and outcome-based (SOLO), featuring predominantly active learning strategies with tasks that are open-ended, authentic, and scaffolded.
The unit uses blended learning which combines learning online with interactive workshops. Using this combination of online and face-to-face learning provides flexibility for all students to learn anytime (24/7), anywhere (with an Internet connection) at a pace that suits their learning style. In this unit students explore concepts online prior to workshops, through videos, audio, websites, simulations, readings, quizzes, blogs and online discussions. Workshops (online or face-to-face) are interactive and use active learning such as; guided instruction (e.g. small group and whole class discussion), role plays, simulations, case studies, scenario-based tasks, problem-based tasks, project-based tasks, presentations and enquiry-based tasks.
Assessment Participation - 10%
