- Teaching and Learning Strategi
- The primary methods of delivering the learning material is Inquiry-based and Project-based Learning by distance. Students will have the opportunity to undertake projects related to their work situation. Students will engage in interactive online learning and module work will be completed by distance via Moodle and Mahara.
Teaching and learning methods will include online delivery with work-based skills development, project-based interactive tasks, training videos, online research and creation of e-portfolios of evidence. Online forums and video conference tutorials will also be available where necessary via Zoom/Skype.
The e-portfolio components could consist of a combination of any of the following: test, assignment, project or formal report. Observational assessments may also be used where appropriate. The weight of the overall assessment is equally distributed across learning outcomes.
Regular feedback to students will be provided including assessment results.
- Assessment Criteria
- Portfolio of Evidence100
Assessment in this module is mixed mode. The portfolio is comprised of multiple components. To pass this module, the student must complete and submit all components and gain a mark of at least 50 for each achievement-based component within the portfolio. Students must also meet all of the requirements of the competency-based tasks to be eligible for a final grade for this module. The final grade will be based on the marks achieved in the achievement-based tasks.
