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.
Lectures are recorded and placed online for viewing It is expected that students will have listened to the latest lecture before attending a tutorial. Tutorial attendance, face to face or online, is expected. Non-attendance to tutorials is likely to diminish a student's ability to meet unit learning objectives, and will likely impair assessment performance. Tutorial attendance records will be kept and can be used as evidence of individual student engagement with the unit. It is expected that students will work through the online component of this course in a timely fashion.
