Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Moderation: Assessments will be moderated in accordance with the Faculty of Health Moderation Guidelines. A copy of the guidelines will be made available on the CANVAS site.
Supplementary assessments will be provided for this unit in line with the University of Canberra guidelines.
If students fail the VIVA, they have one opportunity to take a supplementary VIVA in the same Range of Practice Area but with a different case.
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.
Assessments will be moderated in accordance with the Faculty of Health Moderation Guidelines before they are returned to students. A copy of the guidelines can be found on UCLearn.
To pass this unit students are required to:
* Attend 80% of the online tutorials/workshops.
* Attend 100% of intensives.
* Attend the VIVAs in person.
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.

Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves a clinical placement and 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. The professional nature of this unit also requires 80% participation at all learning activities (lectures, practicals etc. if scheduled – see section 3) for the successful completion of this unit (also see section 6c). If attendance requirements cannot be satisfied (e.g. timetable clash), it is recommended that you meet with your Course Convener to schedule this unit for a future semester. Students are responsible for all travel and accomodation costs for this clinical placement. Students are required to attend this placement for 30 days.
