Learning will be based on weekly module content and activities you can work through independently. Note: You will have deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. Details will be included in your course outline, which will be available on the first day of classes.
You will be required to write an in-person examination as part of the assessment for your course. If you live more than 100 km from the TMU campus, you may arrange to write your exam off campus using an approved external invigilation service. Details on how to arrange invigilation will be provided prior to the first day of class.
