This OLE explains what it means to 'participate' in University-level learning. It equips and empowers students to participate in their tutorials, seminars and classroom experiences at tertiary level. Participation is a routine part of tertiary level assessment and yet, for many students, participation is daunting and new. This unit teaches students to reflect on questions relating to content, audience and situation which will facilitate communication orally in a culturally competent manner. It presents different expectations about participation drawn from a variety of teaching situations and from faculties across the University.
