The cadets need to be able to answer questions about plagiarism in Quiz 1

 

 

This course is about ‘thinking and reflecting’ and is unlike courses that the cadets have previously done.

There are no vocab lists or grammar points for them to learn, this is about the cadets learning to take control of their studying.

 

Everything will, eventually, be done on the iPads. There is a lot of reading for the cadets to do.

the cadets have to do the readings if they don’t, they will not be able to complete the blogs adequately nor answer the quizzes

 

The course is broken down into packets of 8 hours

 

Coursework is 70%:

5 blog posts 20%,

3 Quizzes 30%,

2 presentations 20% (Individual 7.5%, Group 12.5%)

FWA 30%, this comes from Dubai
