Sorry last thread from me, but this is something we had raised a few years back and I wanted to breath some life into it again - why not modularise courses to allow greater flexibility to the learner?  I suspect I know the barriers, but I am interested in thoughts.

    Like Lynda, I have been offering one module which equated to the internal for Level 3 accounting where two students joined the class just for this module and used the credits for NCEA Level 3, however they were past students of mine who had the foundation so found it fine.  Wouldn't work with someone with no background in accounting.

    I have been thinking about the modular approach being more of a shared teaching situation where two or three teachers would share the content for a programme, so not having to commit for a whole year, but that would take some organisation and currently, we are only able to meet the needs as we have them.
