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.
Students are encouraged to engage in all unit acitivities including Lectures, online tutorials and online discussion forums. Student engagement leads to better learning experience and have a positive impact on their achievement in the unit.
Attending/listening lectures before the tutorials; reading the required weekly readings; and active engagement in the tutorials have a positive corelation with high achievement in the unit.
Required IT skills
Standard IT skills to search UC library electronic databases; and record podcast using a smart phone or handhels device or using canvas.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Our tutorials provide an open and safe space for the critical exchange of ideas. Unit content includes topics that some students may find offensive and/or traumatizing. Every effort will be made to forewarn students about potentially disturbing content and also request assistance from all students in creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and sensitivity.
Our tutorial discussion will sometimes touch on the topics related to sensitive topics around sexual orientation and sexuality. This content is disturbing and can potentially upset and traumatise so it is important to be prepared. If you believe that you may find the discussion to be traumatizing, you may choose to not participate in the discussion or to leave the tutorial. Contact your lecturer and tutor so that you can still complete the unit successfully.
