Each trimester concludes with the final examinations that are held during a designated examination period. You are expected to be present for the final examinations, which are held during Examination Week, the exact dates/times and venues are announced via your Blackboard. For each unit you will be allocated a designated seat in one of the examination venues. Your examination venue and seat will be confirmed by the end the teaching period of each trimester via your Blackboard.
You are required to make two hundred (200 words) weekly contributions to your Discussion Forum on Blackboard (E-Learning activities) during the course of the Trimester, which will start in week 2 (officially) and finish in week 5.
The nature of each contribution can be found on the weekly discussion forum on Blackboard. As a guide, the contributions need to be based on thoughts that arise after completing the week’s reading, video materials, Sc. The thoughts may be based on personal experiences or perhaps from a web-site, journal article or mass media item that is relevant to the week’s module topic.
The thoughts that are posted to the forums should be considered and reflect logic and rationale discourse. The intention with this task is to generate discussion about topics in modules to make material in the text come alive. Students are welcomed to make responsible comments, observations or remarks, about other students’ contributions (in an appropriately supportive way).
At the end of Week 5, students should bundle what they consider to be their two (2) best contributions together and submit in a single report to their Instructor with FULL safe assign report and the Holmes Institute Cover Sheet attached in Week 6.
The limit of 1000 words overall (500 words for each contribution), plus or minus 10% is to be strictly observed for the choice of “two (2) best contributions submitted for assessment. Print the word count on the second line of your submission, and your sumame, given name and student number on the first line. Your Instructor will view contributions on a regular basis and may provide selective feedback on these weekly contributions and then assess the two (2) best you have submitted for further consideration and grading.
