The Induction Module: Believing in Great Starts
While we recognise that the induction module is part of a longer transition process from secondary to tertiary education, from undergraduate to postgraduate study, or from traditional face-to-face learning to online learning, we believe in the importance of making not just a good start, but a great one!
What is the induction module?
The induction module is designed to help you feel comfortable in this new learning environment. It introduces you to the ethos and culture of the institution, helps you build relationships and become familiar with methods of learning to effectively study online. It is the threshold upon which students stay awhile in order to begin their new academic journey with confidence and excitement.
The induction module is self-paced with a maximum duration of four weeks. You can decide on the pace and timing of your learning experience and proceed from one section to the next at your own speed.
The module begins with a focus on the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and the available support it provides. The rest of the module introduces you to the practice of writing for academic purposes. Emphasis is placed on the development of your research skills, including critical thinking which fosters active learning rather than just the accumulation of knowledge.
You also have the opportunity to participate in a live webinar during which you will learn how to navigate the VLE, access module resources and submit assignments and you will receive advice on making the most out of your modules.
The module consists of three knowledge checkpoints in the form of quizzes that lead to your first written assignment. This piece of work is crucial, as it allows you to gain perspective on the expectations set throughout your studies. Your tutor will provide you with constructive feedback that will prove valuable for your future written assignments.
Interacting with others and learning collaboratively
You can interact with the community of students and faculty on your module, discuss the various aspects of your learning experience and share your thoughts and feelings using the Discussion Forum. This is an opportunity to begin building your online learning community.
As you weave these interconnecting threads between yourself and others, you will be able to understand the university culture and self-reflect on it and your purpose as a student. This module will shape your expectations of tertiary education, university and most importantly: yourself.
