The course utilizes a combination of weekly large group sessions, tutorials, online resources, and independent study. Providing feedback during class sessions is an important method to encourage learners to consistently think about how they can approach and assess their learning, meeting the assessment goals.

Assessment tasks take various forms (essays, reports, presentations). This approach allows learners to start assessment tasks early in the module, receive feedback along the way, and submit completed tasks collectively at the end of the module. This flexible assessment approach aligns with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and addresses the broader need for incremental development of information literacy and skills.
