Synopsis

As enrolment in this course is a negotiated substitute for enrolment in a scheduled professional experience course, this course will consist of the teaching and learning experiences of the 'replaced' course. In that sense the topics, objectives, reference materials, assessment activities and the requirements to pass the course will differ from student to student, depending on the course that is being replaced.
