Word Count: somewhere between 2000 and 3000 including references
The purpose of this assignment is to encourage a practical engagement with the subject content. Individual educational settings vary significantly so it is not possible to prescribe exactly what will constitute a learning community project. You might choose to create something that supports your own learning (professional learning community) or that of your students (whole school, class, subject, workplace and so on).
Given the scope of this subject (12.5 points) projects should be quite focused and not overly ambitious in terms of resources.
Create, design, describe a learning community setting/project/environment that suits your individual learning/teaching needs. Ideally this project will have a practical component that can be viewed by other members of the subject (care will need to be taken with confidentiality and access).
If the environment already exists you will need to make that clear.
Important Privacy Considerations
