There will be four lectures, one on the first Monday of the term, the second on the first Tuesday of term, the third on the sixth Tuesday of term, and the last on the last Tuesday of the term. All four will be in the Duncan McArthur Auditorium on west campus between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.).
Each week there is one narrated slide-show that students can access on Moodle at their convenience. This will take the place of the weekly lectures, and also introduce the assignments for the Group Learning Sessions.
Every student will have to enroll in one Group Learning Session, and attend their one-and-a-half-hour weekly meetings, where they will perform tasks set out in the week’s narrated slide show. Each week will end with a summary of the week's activities by the professor posted on Moodle.
Every other week there will be a 40-question multiple-choice test accessible on Moodle.
The tests are worth 10% of the final mark each. I will automatically drop the lowest of the six marks.
A total of 20% of the final mark will be awarded for attendance in the Group Learning Sessions. Students who attend all twelve sessions will get 20%. Students who attend ten or eleven will get 15% and students who attend nine or less, will get 0%. You must attend YOUR OWN Group Learning Session. You cannot substitute another session for the one in which you are registered.
A total of 30% of the final mark will be awarded, according to the following rubric, for participation in the Group Learning Sessions:
