Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is comprised of a one hour weekly lecture and a two hour tutorial. Most of the lectures will be recorded with content for that week's topic area (if recorded then this means you do not have to attend a face-to-face lecture - please check the course schedule). Your tutorial time is for practicing and for completing assessments. You should expect to be speaking in most tutorials you attend.

Depending on class numbers we may use some of the lecture time for the speech assessments. You will be notified of this in class and via Moodle.

Please review the weekly course schedule and keep an eye out for Moodle notices.
