Learning & Teaching Activities
Learning & Teaching ModesTeaching and learning activities provided in this course are multi-modal. Staff acknowledge that our student body is has a diverse array of learning styles and hence try to facilitate a learning environment that supports a range of approaches.
Activities are designed to promote students to:
- enable students to understand major health problems (with particular reference to dental health) in Australian society, and the associated social and environmental factors.- provide an opportunity for students to apply the principles ,philosophies and role of health promotion to the community with particular emphasis the role of the oral health practitioner, and- assist students to continue to develop their research skills in a way that will lead to increased confidence and student autonomy (see the Research Skill Development Framework, page 16 of your yearbook).
The information below is provided as a guide to assist students in engaging appropriately with the course requirements.Students will spend approximately 2-3 hours per week working face to face in class meetings for the first 4 weeks of the course. The next 6 weeks of the program see the students working with a mentor semi-independently on their Small Group Discovery Experience project.
It is anticipated that students will spend 2-3 hours per week during these times in preparation and assessment.

This course uses Grade Scheme 8 (shown below). To obtain a pass grade over all in Dental & Health Science IIOH you must obtain an average mark of 50% or more across all assessment.
* Please note, that some courses may set an assessment achievement 'standard' above that of the reported minimum pass mark under Grade Scheme 8. Where this occurs, there will be explicit reference in both the Course Outline and Year 2 BOH Yearbook.
Grade Grade reflects following criteria for
allocation of grade:
Reported outcome Fail No Submission No work submitted for assessment FNS Fail A mark between 1-49 F Pass A mark between 50-64 P Credit A mark between 65-74 C Distinction A mark between 75-84 D High Distinction A mark between 85-100 HD Non-Graded Pass Satisfactory performance NGP Pass Non-Graded^ Satisfactory performance PNG Result Pending An interim result RP Continuing Continuing CN No Formal Examination No Formal Examination NFE
Note that the award of the NGP or PNG grade does not allow indication of higher levels of performance than a minimum passing grade.
The Pass Non Graded (PNG) grade is a temporary grade introduced as part of the University’s efforts to support students during a period of significant disruption caused by the COVID-19’.
The descriptors are to be interpreted within the context of the year-level of the course and within the scope of the assessment task. (Assessment tasks include examinations, essays, assignments, etc.)

The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.
