Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Submission of assessment items is exclusively online, via the Canvas website.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
All assessment items will be moderated as outlined in the Faculty of Health Moderation Guidelines. A copy of these guidelines is available on the Canvas site.
Students are expected to participate by undertaking the readings and assessment tasks. While the pacing of this unit is structured around a weekly participation by downloading and listening to the lectures, undertaking the readings and undertaking any relevant assessment tasks, students may choose to work at their own pace as long as assessment deadlines are still met. Students must complete all assessment items to pass this unit.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
