01. Appraise organisational context and its influence on program design.

Activities:
Drawing on information provided in recorded lectures , readings and video clips of interviews from the field, students will participate in discussion of examples drawn from placement experience. Students will commence building an eportfolio after this disucssion and use this to collect learning assets and reflect on their learning throughout the subject.

02. Differentiate a range of theoretical approaches to program design and apply critically one evidence based approach.

Activities:
Drawing on information provided in readings, recorded lectures, and open access material students will discuss approaches and complete groupwork applying aspects of the program logic model. Students will reflect on their learning in the eportfolio.

Activities:
Through reading, recorded lectures and video clips of interviews from the field students will gain information to draw on during group discussion of the social and political processess evident in an identified scenario. Students will reflect on their learning in the eportfolio.

04. Analyse critically relevant theoretical and empirical literature to construct a problem analysis and theory of change in relation to an identified social issue

Activities:
Informed by literature searching, reading and open access materials, students will use peer teaching and collaboration to inform analysis and identify theory relevant to a specified social issue. Students will reflect on their learning in online discussion and the eportfolio.
