The intention is to provide students with knowledge, understanding and the ability to conceptualise an Islamic epistemological approach that leads to theory and application. The sessions will focus on some core areas that are used in research relevant to Government.

  Online forums will be used to support the scaffolding of knowledge, understanding and abilities. The teaching style will include video conferencing, discussion forums and activity based learning techniques. The focus of the teaching style will be determined through learning diagnostics, undertaken by students, which will identify learning styles needs. A cooperative learning framework is used as a means of supporting equity for both teaching and learning styles.
