Designing a generic career studies module
This module has been designed in order to model the process of course construction in career studies. It is not intended to be treated prescriptively. The process of curriculum construction is a creative and imaginative activity that involves carefully selecting certain topics and not others. It is this process of creative judgement that the material below is designed to model and support.

It is beyond the scope of this course to provide a detailed comparison of the reliability of WiFi and Bluetooth – we simply want to alert you to some of the issues. Broadly these are:
