Students are not entitled to a supplementary assessment for any of the assignments in this unit.
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.
To pass this unit students must:
- Obtain an overall passing grade/mark following submission of the graded assessment tasks (Clinical Writing and Evidence Appraisal assignments) (i.e. > 50 of the 100 total marks available)
- Submit a clinical evidence portfolio that meets the minimum competency standards as set out on the marking rubric
The focus of this unit is on 'the development of clinical skills'. To ensure that you can show evidence at the end of semester that your skills have improved from whatever baseline you begin at, you need to ensure that time is set aside for organizing practice opportunities outside actual class times - with peers and with others (family, friends etc) .
Attendance at the intensives in week1 and week 14 is compulsory.
Students must ensure they are able to attend a minimum of 80% of the workshops either in person or online via the virtual classroom AND that they actively participate. This is a requirement for accreditation purposes – so that we can ensure all students have had ample time to engage with the practical, hands-on and interactive learning tasks designed to facilitate clinical skill development prior to commencing clinical placements.
Attendance in person or electronically at lectures is advised so that questions can be addressed ahead of the practical application activities which will be completed in workshops.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Blackboard Collaborate tool. Blackboard Collaborate provides a virtual classroom or meeting room where you can 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, please visit the LearnOnline Student Help and click on the link to Blackboard Collaborate.
Students are encouraged to explore other online meeting platforms (Zoom/Coviu/Skype) for student consultations with staff. Zoom or Coviu may sometimes be used during regular class time when shared access to video and audio is required for clinical learning. Familiarity with using YouTube to upload unlisted videos and share private links with the class is also advised. File sharing and cloud-based services such as Google Drive and OneDrive may also be required so familiarity with creating and sharing links is advised.
