Your knowledge, understanding and skills from the MOOCs will be supplemented by learning materials supporting critical thinking, reflection and study skills appropriate to masters level assessment. You will have access to ‘light touch’ advice from a learning advisor, but please be aware that (as with the MOOCs you bring to the module as prior learning) you need to be a proactive learner to benefit from the materials and activities supplied (peer-review, case studies, readings and online discussion). Activities and assessment address your own professional situation, culminating in an extended written assignment integrating your prior MOOC learning in the context of challenges posed by technological change.
