Feedback
I felt that there was a little too much work required since most of the assessments required vast amounts of research. I also felt that the study guide did not complement the assessment items at all. you could have completed all the assessment items without ever looking at the study material. Also, a little more help would have been handy when asked to write and present a research report even though it is small.
Recommendation
Review the learning resources to clarify the research focus of the unit.

Feedback
I enjoyed the assessment items especially the involvement with the blog assessments. The research task in assessment item 6 was the most enjoyable due to the ability to select the research topic in assessment item 3. This was further supplemented by the discussion with the course lecturer earlier on in the course.
Recommendation
The unit’s research focus be maintained.
