Student-created Glossary of Key Terms

This is a place learners can work together to develop their understanding of the big ideas in a course.Try it out.

Use this glossary to provide explanations of the key concepts for each unit. Don't stop at a one-sentence definition—give examples and illustrations from your readings, the media, and your own experience. You can include images and links to websites as appropriate.

Students can read and edit one another's entries, but contributors are not identified. Remember that this is an academic setting and that you are preparing yourself for a professional life. This should be reflected here, as elsewhere, in your interactions with tutors and peers.

Disclaimer: Since this glossary is created by students and may change continuously, it cannot be treated as an authoritative source. When you do assignments and study for your examination, rely on your course materials and tutor for accurate definitions of these terms.
