Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Unless stated otherwise:
all assessments should by submitted as MS Word document only.
The essays must also include the standard UC essay cover page with a declaration along the following lines:
By submitting this piece of work I declare that:
- All work submitted is my own work and is referenced appropriately;
- All direct quotes are identified appropriately;
- I have not previously submitted all or part of this work for assessment in any unit at any university;
- I may be subject to student discipline processes in the event of an act of academic misconduct by me including an act of plagiarism
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.
This unit will be delivered in an asynchronous manner for those who wish to study this way, however, students should note that there is no reduction in the amount of time required to study this unit. Not attending tutorials will require extra reading/use of other resources to bolster your learning. Live tutorials will be offered each week for those who wish to attend.
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
This unit may require you to interact with industry professionals. Otherwise, any WIL is simulated.
