This unit is structured in a series of weekly exercises that build towards the final submission. Lectures are also really important in this unit as they cover technical details that will allow you to understand how 3D works. It is expected that you will attend or catch up on all lectures, and put time into these exercises each week, as the assessment tasks are based on them, and this is factored in to the time it should take you to complete the assessment items. As this unit is highly practical, we have found that students can easily become lost if they don't maintain their engagement.
Labs are opportunities for your tutor to provide you with key information, to give you one-on-one attention and advice on your work, and for you to discuss your work with other students. While we will not fail you simply for missing classes, we do expect your attendance and engagement with the variety of online and face to face materials we will be providing you with. Our experience is that students who fail this unit typically do so due to lack of attendance and subsequently don't know how to complete assessment tasks.
Inclusion and engagement
We are extremely keen to ensure all our students are well looked after. If you experience any conditions which adversely impact your ability to participate equally in this unit please contact Student Services who can help your tutor and lecturer help you better.
Students should endeavour to maintain at least 80% attendance for all lectures and tutorials, whether they are virtual or face-to-face. Attendance below 80% may adversely affect your ability to complete the unit at a satisfactory level.
Students who attend campus for class or other purposes must play their part in keeping our campus and community safe by following these basic guidelines to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission:
- Practise good hand hygiene, washing hands regularly;
- If you do happen to cough or sneeze, please do so into the crook of your elbow, dispose of tissues immediately and wash hands immediately
- Practise effective physical distancing;
- Follow all directions of teaching and other UC staff regarding safety measures;
- Stay off campus if you are unwell and get tested according to QLD Government guidelines, and
- Follow University communications about campus arrangements https://www.canberra.edu.au/coronavirus-advice
