Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions

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 expected to attend the majority of workshops during the semester and to contribute to a positive classroom climate unless a learning contract exists that reflects the student will work independently during the semester and draw on the pre-recorded lecture and resources on Canvas and meet periodically with the Unit Convener as necessary.
Required IT skills
Students must be able to use WORD, research on line and be able to access the Canvas site to obtain resources and submit work on line. Students should also use the URKUND drop box provided on the Canvas site before they submit their assignments as they are responsible for the quality of their work.
Work placement, internships or practicums
The Unit requires students to complete two case studies that are based on project-based, problem-based work situated learning and represent a simulation of work integrated learning.
