Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assessment items must be submitted to the unit Canvas site.
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.
Attendance to all classes (lectures, studios, tutorials, workshops, seminars, etc.) is expected. Students must contact the tutor in advance if they are unable to attend. There is a significant link between a student's attendance/participation, and the quality of their learning outcomes demonstrated by the submitted assessable project components. To this end, attendance records are kept and may be used to guide and inform aspects of our evaluation and feedback.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have advanced skills in software relevant to their selected specialisation, associated with digital composition, presentation and report writing. Specific skills related to the unit can be discussed with your unit convenor prior to enrolment.
