Week 1 Tutorial
The aim of the Week 1 Tutorial Resource (pdf) is to help students make the transition from enrolment to your unit so that they can start their journey of learning from week 1. After the first tutorial, students should have an awareness of what they will be learning, how they will participate in lectures, tutorials and online, and begin to participate in a learning community.
