Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Please submit your request for an extension by following the process set out on the Unit Canvas site (not by email).
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.
You are expected to:
- Manage your academic progress and work to achieve the unit learning outcomes.
- Be familiar with information relevant to your units and course including the Unit Outline, Canvas site and assignment instructions.
- Participate actively and positively in the teaching-learning process and comply with the requirements of your course.
- Treat all University staff and fellow students with respect and courtesy.
See Student Charter for more information.
Lectures will be pre-recorded and made available online. Attendance in tutorials (either online or face-to-face) is strongly recommended but not mandatory.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Detailed Instructions regarding the assessment items will be provided on the Canvas site.
