Paper Structure

This paper is delivered online through the Moodle platform. If you are not familiar with this platform, there is an online tutorial which can be taken.

If you are not familiar with online learning, it is really important to timetable in time to complete your online discussions each week, just as you timetable in lectures and tutorials. The good thing about online learning is that this can be done at any time of night or day!

Each week the online coursework comprises

  • an article for you to read, reflect on, and respond to, making links to your classmates’ responses
  • a task to complete which contributes towards Assignments 2 and Assignment 3

Generally the lecturer will attend to queries and participate in discussion on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings each week during semester.

If you have urgent queries which require a quick response on other days, it would be best to e-mail the lecturer at nicola.daly@waikato.ac.nz
