Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Please note, all assessments must be attempted to pass this unit.
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.
Students must complete approximately 200 hours in an approved internship placement, or equivalent for an approved work-based project, in order to successfully complete this unit.
Required IT skills

This unit involves online meetings in real time using Microsoft Teams, Zoom or similar platforms. Students will need a device with a working microphone and speaker or headphones and, ideally, video camera.
