Education and Learning Session Plans (contd)

There are many forms of Education & Learning Session Plans which I have discussed in E+L Session Plans Part 4. This blog continues the series.

DLP’s Summary Education & Learning Session Plan

What: This is a summary outline of the education & learning session of what you are planning to do
Possible Use: This is a summary outline of the education & learning session of what you are planning to do, that can be passed to the students to inform them what they are about to do.
The same summary outline of the education & learning session can be used at the conclusion of the practice session, of what the learners did, and learnt.

  • to revisit AUD111 Module Guide to introduce AUD111.3 Signal Flow exam Assessment task
  • to introduce learners to myself and resources I make available
  • to remind learners re their SAE lynda.com accounts
  • to refer learners to specific resources such as my wordpress site – Signal Flow Part 1 – endorsing the cross-over from CIU110
  • to introduce learners to industry protocols via the SAE Studio Guide, remind students of the qualify and booking process for SAE Tri Studios
  • to reinforce Module Content requirement other than Module Guide
    • synergy with AUD110, AUD112 and CIU110
