Task 1: Course organisation and working collaboratively with other participants

Think first
Show answer
Can you remember how the course is organised? Are you expected to work with other course participants?

As you probably know the course has been organised into eight distinct units with each one dealing with a different aspect of teacher training. You may have chosen to study a select number of units or the whole course. 

Most of the course consists of asynchronous content which can be completed on your own at a time suitable to you. However, some of the units contain group work tasks – you can choose whether you complete these at the same time (i.e. synchronously) or not (i.e. asynchronously). We will either allocate you into groups or ask you to choose who you want to work with.

See the FAQs for more information about how the course is organised.
