Special assessment requirements
Students must get an overall pass of 50% for the evidence based assignment and the clinical writing assignment.
To pass this unit students must PASS the portfolio assignment. This is a must pass assignment. If students do not pass this assessment they will be required to retake the unit the following year.
Students are not entitled to a supplementary assessment for any of the assignments in this unit. This is based on the University of Canberra Assessment policy.
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.
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 both face-to-face and online workshops 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.
