There are no recommended texts although the University library has a wide range of resources likely to cover the student's research topic as well as research methodology. The Research Methods in Health Sciences unit Canvas site (from the first semester of the Honours course) should still be available to you as a resource throughout your Honours studies.
Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
The student must be provided with a satisfactory progress report from either the primary supervisor or the unit convenor to pass the unit (and progress in the Honours program).
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.
Student projects will often utilise space and equipment at the University of Canberra or partner organisation. Use of this space and equipment is generally subject to training and approval such as familiarity with occupational health and safety issues. Students should check with relevant staff if this applies to them and undergo appropriate processes.
Required IT skills
Students should be conversant with searching for relevant articles via electronic means, the use of Canvas, and word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software. Specialist IT skills may be required for some projects and students should negotiate training opportunities with their supervisor(s).
There are no specific IT skills required for the conduct of this unit. Students are required to submit computer drafted work and a range of software is commonly employed for these purposes. Individual student projects may require the learning of specific software and equipment, and this will be undertaken with the assistance of supervisors, technicians and other related staff.
There are no extra costs associated with this unit. Research conducted towards the completion of the Honours program may incur some costs associated with the process of data collection, analysis and interpretation. In the first instance students should work with supervisors to ensure costs associated with conducting the research are eliminated or where unavoidable, modest. Where expenses are unavoidable students are offered a small amount towards research project costs. Please contact the unit convenor, your supervisor, or administrative staff for details.
Work placement, internships or practicums
There are no specific work integrated learning components to this unit. Many research projects will however incorporate opportunities to assist with industry activities which may also be important to the research project. Students must not complete extra activities in industry settings related to their projects unless they are enrolled in the one of the four units from the Health Sciences (Honours) course. This enrolment is important as it covers the student with insurance.
Students are encouraged to partake in related research activities (e.g. UCRISE/Faculty of Health presentations) as these opportunities all enrich the student experience as well as research environment across their Discipline and related research centres. As such opportunities become available they will be advertised on the course and unit Canvas pages.
