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.
This unit is mostly delivered on-campus. If students need to make alternative arrangements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Weekly content will be accessible online via Canvas Mondays 9am (see Timetable of Activities for weekly themes). This will require students to complete some preparation for in-class activity. It is essential that students review the set content prior to their tutorial.
Participation in tutorials will ensure that you experience two-way learning and get the best experience through engagement with your peers. However, if you have difficulty or concerns regarding tutorial attendance please get in touch so that we can make arrangements (email@example.com).
Tutorial activity and discussion will focus on weekly themes or assessment tasks. It is expected that you complete weekly readings to participate in class and that on assessment weeks you come prepared as outlined in your assessment schedule. We will generally leave time at the end of each tutorial for student consultation. You are encouraged to bring your laptop or smartphone device to explore examples further and to work on assessments in the set tutorials.
