Applied learning Live project

Discussion of ideas is encouraged throughout the module and participants are regularly challenged to question, explain and explore topics under consideration. Application of learning and justification of practice is strengthened by the use of questioning, peer-review, and asynchronous or synchronous online conferencing (such as the use of discussion boards and Blackboard Collaborate). A number of these activities reflect approaches which may be encountered in practice. The online discussion board and collaborate sessions will be used to provide tutorial support, peer support and share learning.
