Students will engage in learning experiences through ECU Blackboard as well as additional ECU learning technologies.

Additional Learning Experience Information

This unit will be conducted in the on-campus and off-campus mode.

On-campus students have a weekly lecture and tutorial (or site visit). Lectures are used to introduce the central concepts of the unit and to guide students through development of the heritage planning concepts and their applications. Tutorials allow students to workshop through questions that enable them to identify and apply the concepts presented in the lecture. The on-campus mode will be supported by materials located on the ECU Blackboard website and electronic communication between instructor and students.
A major project will consolidate learning by requiring students to prepare an assessment for a real location utilising heritage planning concepts developed in the unit.

Off-campus students will access the program via the MyECU/Blackboard website. Regular online access is required.
