There are nine substantive sessions and one revision session, all recorded in the form of audio lectures. You listen to these first before you do any reading, and then once more after you have read the recommended texts. You will be able to calibrate your progress by carrying out the self assessed activities. Feedback to these activities is provided in the ‘Activity Feedback’ folder under each session.
The course is delivered through our Teaching Zone so you also gain free access to our Manager’s tool kit and effective learning skills sections. Como faço para pagar este curso?
