You are required to engage in reflective and academic discussions
How to successfully approach this task:
You will be provided with specific issues that you need to address in the forum discussions. These will be located in the first two topics in the interact site.
Reflect on these questions and post your written responses on the forum and engage with your peers and their responses. As this is a postgraduate course, it is expected that your written responses will provide you with an opportunity to express your personal and professional views. There are no correct answers, however, the way you justify your answers with validated evidence is key to this activity. It is recommended that you post your responses as you get to the forum prompts in the topics in interact.
To successfully complete this task, you are required to curate, collect and save your responses in a word document to be submitted on Turnitin. Include the date and time this was posted on the forum. This activity’s final mark will be provided prior to the final assessment item. It is key that you respond and posts regularly and not post everything in the week that this assessment item is due.
