There are no set texts for this unit as I want you to research the literature and develop your own reading list, but the unit web site will provide some links to materials that will get you started in the right direction.
Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
This unit is very sensitive to the shifting time pressures on students. I am very happy to grant extensions to students who need to organise their time creatively. However, it is important that you submit an extension request form at least a week before the due date so we can adjust our work plans to accommodate. It is also important to make sure you keep talking to your tutor, and to keep them informed of your progress. If you foresee any potential problems, please ensure you negotiate extensions early with your tutor to reduce your stress and to help your tutor manage their time, too.
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 requires quite a lot of personal engagement. If you only engage with the unit in classes (or worse, miss classes altogether) you will have serious problems completing a good final project. If this is one of the last units in your degree it's really vital you make sure you put the recommended time into this unit or you risk failing. If you feel you're falling behind please see your lecturer. You will not be judged in any way - we want to see you succeed, but we can only help if you ask for it.
Inclusion and engagement
Don't forget that inclusion and engagement is also there to support students who suffer from anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions. You don't need to just tough it out - if you're struggling, tell someone and look for assistance from Inclusion and Engagement, who can help your lecturer and you find a way to let you do your best in the unit.
Required IT skills
Students require advanced IT skills to complete this unit. Students are expected to have at least intermediate level knowledge in 3D production, commensurate with having completed at least one university of diploma level unit in 3D production using software like Maya, Blender, 3D Studio Max, Rhino and so on. If in doubt, please discuss with your lecturer.
