Teacher Information 

This website provides a framework for participants to perform an authentic task with real-world relevance. It is ill-defined and participants will identify multiple ways of creating using technologies for social, learning, teaching and research purposes. Identifying suitable contexts and selecting appropriate resources for each tasks will require some thought, effort, time and access to computers with internet connections. 

To conform with university assessment guidelines the overall learning task has been divided into two smaller tasks. Detailed feedback should be given to students about their performance and how they can improve on aspects covered in task one and two.

Task one is designed to be completed individually, however, there are opportunities for students to network and share their thoughts and ideas with their peers via their blogs, forums discussion areas and the Skype chat. Task 2 Part A is completed in small groups and Part B is completed individually. 

Most of the content, supports and resources for this course are accessible from this website which is open to the public (an open access environment). Participant enrolments, profiles, assessment details, results and other confidential information are located on the learning management system (Blackboard LMS a closed environment).  

The attached documents show how the unit learning objectives were analysed to mirror the workplace context and create the learning scenario and how the unit tasks and assessments were designed.
