Special assessment requirements
To pass this unit:
- Students must pass their Observation Placement Record Form submission to pass the unit. Students who do not submit, or do not pass the assessment the first time (marked as incomplete), will have one opportunity to resubmit the assignment. Students who do not pass their resubmission will be required to retake the unit when next offered.
- Students must achieve an overall mark of 50% for the unit.
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.
Active engagement with peers, staff and with the wider community will be a key element of this unit.
Attendance at the Intensive in Week 14 of Semester 1 is compulsory.
Students must ensure that they are able to attend a minimum of 80% of workshops in person or in real time online (6 of the 7). This requirement is for accreditation purposes - so that we can ensure that students have ample opportunities for developing the clinical and professional competencies required to succeed on future clinical placements.
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 also encouraged to explore other online meeting platforms (Zoom/Skype/Coviu] for student consultations with staff, as well as phone/computer apps that enable face to face contact over distance. Managing 'connection' in real time will increasingly become the responsibility of the student - as part of building capacity to use technology wisely in future clinical practice. Students should make time to be clear about the ways in which the relevant platforms work for face-to-face interaction and, where possible, for document and video sharing. In addition, students should be mindful that they are entering a 'professional' zone when they are engaging in professionally relevant activities online with peers and staff, and should consider the context in which they use the online space, as well as ensuring that they have adequate resources [headphones/microphones etc] to complete professionally relevant activities.
Students will be required to pay for the required checks and also travel to and from placement sites.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves 3 single day observations. Therefore, additional student responsibilities are required. Work-place learning requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. Client/patient confidentiality must always be maintained, including for assessment items such as reports or essays. Students must have a working with vulnerable people check (or state equivalent) and a National Criminal History Check. Students must be compliant with all placement requirements, inlcuding immunisations. Failure to obtain these check or comply with immunisation requirements will proclude students from attending observation placements.
