Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
There will be drop boxes on your Canvas site where you can submit all your assessment items. If you have difficulty in adding, for example, your USB then you may submit it directly to the Unit Convener.
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.
Participation in this unit requires you to attend all workshops and attend in the workplace for 150 hours.
Students are expected to complete the "InPlace" software application that can be found on the Canvas site or UC website for this unit. Once populated with all the relevant details the unit convenor will assess and approve if the placement is acceptable. Notification will then be generated and an email sent to both yourself and your placement Supervisor indicating this approval. There is also a Learner/Supervisor Agreement to be completed and this can be found on Canvas. Should you have any difficulties please email your Unit Convenor directly.
Required IT skills
There are no additional costs for this unit unless a "Police Check" or "Working with Minors" is required. A total of approximately $30 should cover these checks/reports if required. UC Career's Office can assist you should this be required.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves an internship and therefore, additional student responsibilities are required in addition to those described in this section. Work-place learning requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. Client/patient confidentiality must always be maintained including for assessment items such as reports or essays. The professional nature of this unit also requires 100% participation at all learning activities (lectures, practicals etc. if scheduled – see section 3) for the successful completion of this unit (also see section 6c). If attendance requirements cannot be satisfied (e.g. timetable clash), it is recommended that you meet with your Course Convenor to schedule this unit for a future semester.
