Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper will be taught using a combination of online and in-class teaching and learning strategies that give you the flexibility of attending classroom sessions and participating online This approach has the added benefit of enabling us to readily transition if we need to return to a lockdown situation.

Topics will be provided every week via Moodle for you to study independently. In addition, a face-to-face workshop will be held in room MSB.1.03 every Tuesday (11 am-1 pm). Participation in these workshop classes is very important to achieve the learning goals. The sessions will be recorded and made available on Moodle for students who have a legitimate reason for not attending in person. These classroom sessions will build on that week's topics with a combination of instructor- and student-led activities that discuss relevant questions, analyse cases, and provide insights to help you 'scaffold' your learning (discussion sessions will be available via Zoom video conference). Further details on these options will be provided via Moodle as the paper progresses.

Note that this paper is being taught using a flipped-classroom learning model. This means that you are responsible for independently completing the course materials prior to ‘attending’ the workshops.
