Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Integrating Nursing Concepts 1 (INC1) provides students with the opportunity to integrate learning from foundation units: Foundations of Anatomy and Physiology; Foundations of Professional Planning and Therapeutic Use of Self 1. INC1 engages the concepts from those units and applies them to contemporary nursing practice through immersive simulation, interactive workshops and an observational workplace experience (40 hours). The goal of the unit is to develop conceptual understanding of critical principles as a foundation for future practice.
