Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assignments submitted for grading must be word-processed. Students must be able to produce an electronic copy of all work submitted and be able to resubmit if requested by the Convenor.
Students are expected to retain copies of all assessment items submitted until a final grade for the course has been awarded. Creating a backup of all your computer files is highly recommended.
Citation and referencing format should conform to the APA guidelines both in the body of your paper and its attached reference section. See: https://www.canberra.edu.au/about-uc/faculties/arts-design/attachments2/pdf/n-and-mrc-conference/APA-Referencing-Guide.pdf
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 are expected to allocate at least 12 hours per week for this unit. It is highly recommended to well-engage with your academic supervisor from week 1.
Required IT skills
Common IT skills, such as writing a report electronically, and using web browsers are required.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit is an academic research project and may include fieldwork depending on the nature of the research project.
