The off-site model: #ourmobteach presentation by Ratep
Ratep has developed an off-site delivery model within the Certificate IV in Education and Diploma of Education courses. The model allows non-qualified Indigenous people to study from a school location where an ‘on-site’ Ratep centre does not exist.
The model incorporates interactive virtual classroom e-sessions, online assessment/course content and developing mobile technologies. Teacher-learner relationships are enhanced by ‘off-site students having regular access to a full time, Department of Education ‘off-site teacher coordinator’ who provides additional tutorial, pastoral and administrative support to off-site students.
