Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Each unit you are enrolled in has an online teaching site (CANVAS) in the learning management system UCLearn. You access UCLearn through MyUC. Follow the link that states "Continue to UCLearn (Canvas)".
There will be assignment drop boxes on Canvas where you will submit all your assignments.
Participation requirements in this unit require you to attend all workshops and do 150 hours of workplace participation.
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
No additional costs beyond your travel, parking, accommodation expenses, a police check (if required - currently approximately cost approximately $29) together with your normal unit enrolment fee are anticipated. If you are working with children you may also require a current working with children approval certificate (currently these are free for unpaid internship positions). If you require this certificate and/or a Police Check then steps involved on how to obtain these certificates can be found at www.canberra.edu.au/placement
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves "professional practicum", 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 your participation in all learning activities (workshops, field placements etc. as 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 Convener to schedule this unit for a future semester.
