Type 3: Task-autonomy

The task-autonomy learning design is suitable for developing competencies typically within Certificates IV and Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas. It represents learning that seeks, in the main, mid-higher order learning outcomes, through student directed activities with high degrees of choice and determination in the development of a product or artefact.

The engagement in this learning design is less directed than Type 2 and involves the learner in the task development and decision-making required to develop the product or artefact with appropriate support and guidance. The focus of assessment is, in the main, a measure of the learners’ success in the development of a product or artefact.
