Course overview

This course is a hybrid course, which means that the course is taught simultaneously in two modes of delivery. The first mode of delivery is a blended course: you will have some compulsory in-class sessions on the Epsom campus and complete the rest of the course online. The second mode of delivery is a fully online course: you will join the compulsory on-campus sessions remotely using a video-conference function, and complete the rest of the course online. When you enrol you will be able to select your choice of delivery mode.

Learning outcomes

At the completion of the course, it is intended that students will be able to: Demonstrate a critical understanding of the theory, research and practice on accelerating the learning of students making less than expected progress. Develop and evaluate a digital teaching method for accelerating learning using the knowledge and skills gained through the course.
