Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
This module will be facilitated with synchronous online lecture sessions through Zoom and supported by textbooks, Panopto, online and written resources, videos such as TED talks, prescribed articles, and other resources accessible on Moodle. Your attendance is required, and your success in this module depends greatly on your active participation. All tutorials, workshops, and activities will be included in your lectures. This means each two-hour session will be a blend of lecturing, workshop activities, discussions, and more. It is expected that every student will prepare for every session ahead of time and contribute actively to activities and discussions in class. The degree to which you benefit from these sessions depends on your engagement with the material, the lecturers, and your fellow students. Therefore, your learning's success depends on the amount of time and effort you put into your own learning. Please refer to Moodle for details.

Please double check submission deadlines and class times against your country's time zone, as the paper outline will show times in NZST.
