Students have the support of the Faculty Academic Support Advisor for tutoring on presentation communication and writing skills.(L.O.3) Each team member is allocated a task by the team and all are expected to be active within the team project activities and bring their specific discipline skills to the collaborative project.

The learning log consists of an A4 bound lined note book into which the students record their contribution to the project and their written reflections during and at the end of the project.
