Workload

Edit Workload Content
This is a 15 point paper, which equates, in total, to 150 hours of student work. You need to allocate at least 6-7 hours a week to this course. It would be great if you spent a minimum of two consecutive hours a week just reading and viewing the material. I also recommend that you form groups to discuss the course material as some of it is complex and needs discussion to help you process the ideas.
