Online Learning Commitments

The Faculty of Arts and Education have developed a set of online learning commitments to underpin improvements in the learning experiences of students supported by online learning technologies and pedagogies.

The commitments are as follows.

  1. By 2015, students in all on campus and distance subjects will be able to access all learning resources online with resources including textual, audio-visual and interactive media designed specifically for online engagement;
  2. By the end of 2015, students in all distance subjects will regularly engage with their academic teachers and student peers through designed and facilitated online learning activities aligned to authentic assessment tasks. There will be a mix  of synchronous  and asynchronous  activities and students unable to be present at synchronous sessions  will have the opportunity to listen to and/or view recordings and undertake follow up asynchronous activities; and
  3. By the end of 2015, students in all on campus subjects will regularly engage with their academic teachers and student peers through designed and facilitated learning activities aligned to authentic assessment tasks.There will be a mix of face to face and online activities and some face to face sessions will be recorded to allow students to listen to and/or view recordings and undertake follow up online activities.
