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.

This unit will be a practical introduction to the range of sports broadcasting roles. Studio and field activities will give you hands-on experience in producing and presenting a radio sports show, 'live' interviewing and reporting, sports commentary, and producing sports content for other audio formats such as podcasting. You will produce and present radio sports shows for broadcast on-air and online. The unit will examine the challenges of 'live' broadcasting while adhering to the core principles and legal obligations of journalism: accuracy, impartiality, factual reporting and audience engagement.
