Introduction to Delivery Format

This class will be delivered in 4 hour schedules every Tuesday morning . The content will be posted on this blog as well as on MyKangan. Tasks, discussions and research will be conducted inside the 4 hour slot and at home.

You are expected to work towards goals independently and to be able to operate as part of a team. In a work place you will sometimes be lucky to work with people that you easily get along with, but unfortunately you might often have to work with people that you might not easily get along with. A professional looks beyond this and finds ways to function in a professional environment with a range of personalities.


Important: You need to submit all your assessments on MyKangan. It is your responsibility to follow up due dates and access to MyKangan.

  1. Day 1 Task – this task is a simple comprehension task to establish student participation. (due: after the first class)
  2. Assessment 1 MM Production – The Event – due: 10/9/13 5:30pm
  3. Assessment 2 – due: 24/9/13 5:30pm
