Additional recommended readings are gradually uploaded onto the unit canvas site one or two weeks before each session.
Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessment items required to be submitted online must be submitted via the appropriate Canvas drop box. It is the student's responsibility to upload the correct and corresponding draft or assessment item to the right submission section. Assignments must be submitted in a format accessible to the assessor(s), as stated on the relevant canvas site. If the unit convener and/or tutor are unable to access a submission, a standard late penalty of 5% of the total marks possible for the task may be applied per day until the assignment is made accessible.
Special assessment requirements
Normally an aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit.
Workshops: 30 hours (3 hours per week)
Weekly reading and tutorial preparation: 60 hours (6 hours a week)
Assignment 1: 4 weekly Quiz: 4 hours
Assignment 2: 16 hours.
Assignment 3: 40 hours. You should work on your assignment throughout the semester.
Attendance at all scheduled sessions in this unit is compulsory and absences could result in a fail. All absences need to be supported by appropriate documentation (e.g. medical certificate).
Successful engagement with all learning activities in this accredited Initial Teacher Education course is necessary to demonstrate that you have met the Graduate career stage of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL, 2011).
It is recognised that sometimes absence is unavoidable. If you are absent for more than two sessions, however, your engagement with the unit could be considered unsatisfactory.
Required IT skills
Students will need to have access to Canvas and be able to present their assignments in the required digital format such as Mahara.
It is expected that students undertaking this unit will have a basic level of information technology
competence that includes electronic manipulation of documents, PowerPoint, photographs,
videos, slideshows, e-books, websites and apps.
Work placement, internships or practicums
However, students are encouraged to use their time (during their placement for other units) to test several activities to a small group of students.
This requires strict adherence to professional practice and principles and ethics. School, student, and/or participant confidentiality must always be maintained, including for samples of students' works.
Provision of information to the group
Notifications through the Canvas Announcements Forum or the Canvas Discussion Forums are deemed to be made to the whole class. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they check for announcements on the Unit's Canvas website (forum messages are also emailed to student email addresses only). Students should ensure they check their student email regularly. The Canvas discussion forums will be checked by staff regularly.
Use of student email account
The University Email policy states that "students wishing to contact the University via email regarding administrative or academic matters need to send the email from the University account for identity verification purposes". Therefore, all unit enquiries should be sent by email using a student university email account. Students should contact the Service Desk ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if they have any issues accessing their university email account.
