Make sure you read the Marking Schedule below carefully before embarking on the assignment. It will give you clear idea of what we are looking for in the submission!
You might at times feel isolated and feel the need to run ideas by your fellow students. Make sure you use the Discussion Board to communicate with your peers and exchange resources and ideas. There is a Forum available just for that purpose. Please use it. If you have questions which you want to address to your facilitator, don’t hesitate to contact them. You will find their contact details on the announcement page.
The report of course will have to be your own work but collaboration at the planning stages and sharing of resources is encouraged.
